The magic of a terroir can inspire the finest chemistry. At Château Cossieu-Coutelin, the wine and the “murrain” oak merge exquisitely, creating perfect harmony.The vines of Château Cossieu-Coutelin, in the prestigious appellation of Saint-Estèphe in the Haut-Médoc, are planted in a clay and limestone soil which contributes to its outstanding quality. The vineyard was bought in 1977 by Marcel and Christian Quancard. 52% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon. At the end of vinification, the wine is matured for 12 months in french oak barrel (60% new barrels). Beautiful colour with shades of ruby. Dominated by scents of stewed fruit, the intense nose leads on to a perfectly structured, full-bodied palate. The Cabernet’s tannins are powerful and will reveal a very attractive, deep, distinguished wine after ageing for a few months.
