With its ruby color, the wine offers notes of liquorice, cherries jam and toast. It's full-bodied, fleshy, ample and well balanced.
Chateau Suau is one of the first vineyards of Bordeaux to start its ISO 14 001 certification. This process begins by implementing an EMS, Environnemental Management System (SME in French) of the wines of Bordeaux, intiated by our CIVB. The EMS aims to reduce the impact of wine production on the environment while improving overall productivity. This environmental management tool integrates both energy consumption, the sorting and recycling of waste, methods of pest control, cropping patterns, health and safety of employees, residents and consumers. We feel that these changes complement perfectly with our approach to an organic farming culture. The vineyard is situated in the Cotes de Bordeaux-Cadillac appellations, and encompasses 65 hectares (160.55 acres) of red grapes: 10% Cabernet Franc, 55% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon; and 7 hectares (17.3 acres) of white grapes: 50% Sémillon, 30% Sauvignon, and 20% Muscadelle. The vines, planted in gravel and clay terroir, benefit from favorable south-south east facing slopes and plateaus.
