Château Coustaut is an ancient estate, run by the Ardurats family, direct descendants of a line of wine growers from before the reign of the French King Henri IV (late 16th century). The property covers 40 hectares of both Red and White vines (nearly 100 acres in total) in the villages of La Brede (home of the famous writer Montesquieu) and Saint-Morillon, both located in the heart of the Graves, historic birthplace of the Bordeaux vineyards, and bordering on the Pessac-Leognan Appellation. Ample and very aromatic white Graves offering a brilliant nose of citrus fruits, hints of floral tones, mineral and gravelly / silex notes. Full, complex and rich palate of white flowers, grapefruits zest and pear skins aromas. Very long, mineral and tasty finish.
