“Hidden behind a row of 100 years old oaks, Château Suau was during the
XVIth century the hunting lodge of the Duke of Epernon. Then it has belonged
to the Suau family now. I have owned and managed the estate since 1986.”

Best Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are picked and selected to be aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. Château Suau red wine will seduce you with its toasty, cocoa and vanilla aromas. Slightly oaked, you’ll enjoy its full-bodied and silky mouth on its own, with red meat different all type of cheeses.
