The Château Coutet winery boasts a 400-year long history. It is located at the top of the Saint-Martin de Mazerat plateau. That is why you will have amazing views of the Entre-Deux-Mers hillsides and Fronsac hillock from the winery. The winery spans an area of 16 hectares. Major grape varieties include Merlot, Bouchet (Cabernet Franc), Cabernet Sauvignon and Prayssac (Malbec). Currently, the 14th generation of the Beaulieu family lives on the estate. Alain, the manager, and winemaker, along with his brother Xavier, nephew Adrien and son Matthieu run the vineyard.
The winery produces great-tasting wines without affecting the environment. They use no weed killer or pesticide for wine production. They do all winemaking work manually. The prosperous biotope and varied flora around the winery allow healthy and sustainable agriculture. They add natural composts punctually.
Château Coutet warmly and happily welcomes the public. The winery is open to wine tourism since 2013. The David Beaulieu family still feels pleased to share their passion and knowledge of terrior with the visitors. They also give visitors a chance to taste their wines. The winery is currently refurbishing a reception hall to organize weddings, wine seminars, wine-tasting, and winemaking workshops. Each activity takes place in a dynamic, traditional and friendly atmosphere.
The family is restructuring the château staff. Therefore, that will include an in charge of the wine tourism development and manager of the viticulture work. Soon, they will open the André David Beaulieu Museum within the winery’s boundaries. Because of all these reasons, Chateau Coutet is a must-visit winery if you ever happen to be in Bordeaux.
