The harvest stretches from September to November, involving thirty to forty days of hand-picking in successive passes through the vineyard to ensure that the grapes are picked only when they have all the required characteristics. 

Each precious batch goes through the press, a decisive step for extraction, and is then barrelled for the next step: fermentation. The barrels are laid down the length of the barrel hall, then comes the long period during which the wine matures. When the time comes for blending, old cellar-masters return to the estate, sharing and passing on their memories of taste, time and place to the current team.


Château Coutet, a Classified First Growth, is a flagship of the Barsac appellation. After a few years in the bottle, it develops spice and tropical and candied fruit notes, in delicate harmony.

Details

First built as a fortress, Château Coutet still bears the stamp of its medieval origins. The square tower with its battlements, located in the centre of the courtyard, is typical of military constructions of the time. The following centuries also left their mark on the architecture: the Salasse (or Salace) – a fortified house – bears witness to the architectural style of the 14th century. The chapel and two other towers show how the estate evolved during the 18th century.

The history of Château Coutet as a winemaking estate starts in 1643, when Charles Le Guérin, known as Lord of Coutet, made it one of the first vineyards in the Sauternes appellation. The estate remained in the hands of his descendants until 1788. The estate is now owned by the Rothschild family.
