With origins dating back to the 18th century, Chateau Soutard takes its name from a very old locality on the only limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion. Chateau Soutard has been owned since 2006 by the insurance company AG2R LA MONDIALE.
Chateau Soutard watches over a 30 hectare vineyard, all in one piece, of which 21.14 hectares are in production. Aged 20 years on average, the vines are planted mainly on the clay-limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion as well as on clayey slopes and sandy foothills.
Vinification and aging
Following the harvest, the grapes are kept in a cold room. Densimetric sorting is carried out before the fruit is transferred by gravity into thermoregulated wooden vats as well as double-walled tapered stainless steel vats. Aging is carried out in French oak barrels (55% new barrels, 30% second-fill barrels) and 15% in casks.
The Chateau Soutard 2020 seduces with its aromatic richness, its elegance and its subtle blend of finesse and power.
