In 1855, the estate was classified as a First Growth and recognized for its continued excellence.
Today, as the oldest and largest Barsac estate, Château Coutet stays true to its tradition of distinction and quality.
The finest Barsac-Sauternes is produced annually under the direction and management of the Baly family as well as the technical and commercial collaboration of the Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A. company, the vineyard’s exclusive distributor.
Château Coutet benefits from an exceptional terroir. The vines’ deep roots extract elements from a limestone and clay-based soil, giving the grapes freshness, richness and strength. For this reason the wine carries the name “Coutet,” derived from the Gascon’s word for knife, to signify the fresh, lively and crisp palate that is the estate’s signature style.
