Located on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region, with its 30 hectares in one piece, on the limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion, the majestic Chateau Soutard is a beautiful reference of this prestigious appellation. The wines of this historic property are appreciated by wine lovers for their power, depth and finesse, along with the elegance of fruit.
Derived from a blend largely dominated by Merlot (90%) and complemented by Cabernet Franc (10%), the Chateau Soutard 2017 presents a superb aromatic bouquet, in which the freshness of red berries is intense. On the palate, the wine delivers elegance and finesse, with a texture that emphasizes the smoothness of its tannins, with a tension that brings balance and depth to the very long finish. A nice vintage for this Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion.
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Soutard comes racing out of the glass with vibrant blackberries, warm blueberries and redcurrants scents, plus wafts of roses and pencil lead. Medium-bodied, the palate has loads of crunchy fruit and a seriously zippy line of freshness, finishing with a slightly chewy texture.
