Boasting origins that date back to the 18th century, Chateau Soutard is one of the oldest estates in Saint-Émilion. It takes its name from a very old locality that is situated on the only limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion. Since 2006, Chateau Soutard has been owned by the insurance company, AG2R LA MONDIALE.
Chateau Soutard watches over a 30-hectare single-block vineyard, of which 21.14 hectares are in production. The vines are 20 years old on average and are planted mainly on the clay-limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion as well as on clay slopes and sandy foothills. To highlight the beauty and richness of its land, Chateau Soutard has been a forerunner of Wine Tourism in Bordeaux since 2011.
