    The second wine of Château Coutet since 1977, La Chartreuse de Coutet has a beautiful robe and particularly fresh bouquet. White flowers, fresh fruits and also ripe fruits are present on the palate which is well rounded and balanced by good acidity. Spiced and honey notes make it the perfect pairing for festive dishes such as turkey in maple syrup, chestnuts and pumpkin puree. As for the winemaking, the grapes are picked as the noble rot forms, meaning that several harvests take place (normally around 6 to 8). The wine is then raised for 18 months in oak fûts (40% new).
