CHÂTEAU COUTET 2011
SAINT-ÉMILION GRAND CRU
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.
All the classic work is done manually and no chemical treatment (weed killer, pesticide) has ever been used at Coutet. The rich biotope and diverse flora surrounding the vine make it possible to practice healthy and sustainable agriculture, allowing natural predators known as “pests” to play a role in limiting erosion and controlling yields. Natural composts are added punctually.
