From organic grapes on the Saint-Émilion plain, this is a rich wine, full of ripe black fruits. An attractive streak of acidity keeps the wine fresh and taut. Drink this well-structured wine from 2022.

Product Description:

Chateau Coutet vineyard is established on the first hill of Saint-Émilion, half a kilometre away from the village. Coutet’s closest neighbours are all prestigious châteaux. Its vines have always been grown with the higher respect of the terroir and nature, as a result of which it obtained the organic certification in 2012. A walk among Coutet’s vines helps understand why the Saint-Émilion landscape is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The density of plantation is about 6,000 vines/ha. The vine population is made up of 60% merlot, 30% bouchet (cabernet franc), 5% cabernet sauvignon and, as a touch of originality, 5% pressac (local malbec). The vines are 38 years old on average.
