Region Bordeaux

Bordeaux is one of the most famous wine regions in the world, renowned for producing prestigious fine wines that have the capacity to age for decades. Although best known for its top wines, Bordeaux is in fact a vast region spanning 120 000 ha of vineyards with over 10 000 wine producers and 57 different appellations. Located in the South-West of France, straddling the Gironde estuary, Bordeaux enjoys a maritime climate characterised by temperate winters and long warm summers. This provides ideal growing conditions in which to produce red wines that now comprise 88% of Bordeaux’s total wine production. There are five permitted red grape varieties in Bordeaux; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Carménère, although only the first three are used extensively. Bordeaux also produces crisp dry white wines in the sub-region of Graves made from Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc and luscious botrytised sweet wines from the famous regions of Sauternes and Barsac.

Winery CHATEAU COUTET

A prestigious 1er Cru Classé estate, Château Coutet is the oldest and largest property in Barsac. The estate has been owned by the Baly family since 1977. The name ‘Coutet’ is derived from the Gascon’s word for knife and the estate’s wines are renowned for their fresh ‘cutting’ acidity and crisp lively palate. Château Coutet has 35 hectares of vineyards planted to Sémillon (75%), Sauvignon Blanc (23%) and Muscadelle (2%). In their youth the wines show beguiling aromas of citrus, tropical fruits, white flowers, honey and ginger, revealing more candied fruit, gingerbread notes with age. The wine is matured in oak barriques for 18 months.
