A brief history

CHÂTEAU DE HAUT COULON is tended like a garden but vinified like a Grand Cru, producing a bold, original wine with an inimitable style. Located in the village of Sainte-Eulalie, the Haut-Coulon vineyard is planted with three classic Bordeaux varietals: Merlot, Cabernet-Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. With only 3.86 hectares, this is the smallest family estate property, but one of the most interesting geologically: its soils contain blue montmorillonite clay. In the winery, truncated conical tanks of aerated concrete optimise tannin and flavour extraction.

While concentration, ripeness and boldness are quite clearly the watchwords at Château de Haut-Coulon, this is not at the expense of elegance. An intense nose reveals characteristic maturity and freshness. A full bodied, fleshy attack gives way to strong mineral tannins. Held together by a savoury, almost saline mouthfeel, the finish is elegant and distinguished. The presence of Petit Verdot in the blend (17%) provides rich tannins and bold aromas, especially violet.
