"With 30% Cabernet Franc in the blend, this shows the textured, structured side of Saint-Emilion. The tannins are firm, but come from the delicious fruit, particularly the bright blackberry fruits that give a final lift." 
--Wine Enthusiast

 

Chateau Coutet in St. Emilion has not garabbed a lot of attention with consumers. Perhaps that could change in 2014, due to a recent invention for vineyard management created by the owner of Chateau CoutetXavier David Beaulieu.

In 2014, Xavier David Beaulieu, the current of Chateau Coutet introduced the Vitirover. The Vitirover is a drone for growers to use in their vineyards. Powered by solar energy. using GPS technology to maneuver in the vineyards, vineyard managers can fly the drone using an app on their smart phones!

The Vitirover will help growers with instant diagnostics allowing for immediate identification of any problems in the vines. The Vitirover also comes equipped with infrared camera lenses that allow growers the ability to also detect levels of ripeness ion a parcel by parcel basis, as well as even on a vine by vine basis!

Bernard Magrez of Chateau Pape Clement in Pessac Leognan and Basile Tesseron of Chateau Lafon Rochet in St. Estephe are among the first chateau owners to embrace the technology.

The St. Emilion vineyards of Chateau Coutet are planted to 60% Merlot , 35% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec , with vines that are on average 32 years of age.  It might not seem like a lot to find 5% Malbec in a Bordeaux vineyard, but with their Malbec vines, Chateau Coutet St. Emilion has one of the plantings of Malbec in the Right Bank . The vineyard is planted on a large, single parcel with sand, clay and limestone. On average, the production of Chateau Coutet St. Emilion is close to 4,000 cases per year.
