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% malbec. The vines are over 40 years old on average. Chateau Coutet is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau Coutet is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta as well as cheese.
