Château Coustaut

Château Coustaut is an ancient estate run by the Ardurats family, direct descendants of a line of wine growers from before the reign of the French King Henri IV (late 16th century). The property is located in the villages of La Brede and Saint-Morillon, both in the heart of Graves, bordering the Pessac-Léognan appellation. The soil, mainly deep gravel, is ideally situated on well-exposed slopes; the vines for the white wines are 30-40 years old on average. Coustaut's combination of great, deep, gravelly terroir, old vines, generations of know-how, ecological treatments and reasonable yields with a careful vinification process and very judicious blending makes this white Graves a constant hit. Delicate and racy at the same time, lively while young, it evolves over the years to a brilliant bouquet without losing any of its complexity. The estate is a part of TERRA VITIS, an organisation that certifies domaines for sustainable agriculture.
