Château La Couspaude is a Grand Cru Classé property that has recently risen to prominence with consumers and critics alike. Only 3000 cases a year are produced from a small 7 hectares vineyard located on a rocky, chalky clay plateau only 500 metres from the centre of the village of St. Emilion.
La Couspaude is typically a blend of 70% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon - the grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness and then fermented in stainless steel vats. The wine is matured for 16-18 months in 100% new oak barrels.
Owner Jean-Claude Aubert and winemaker Vincent Rebillout have turned La Couspaude around in a relatively short period of time and they now have a reputation for producing ultra-ripe, rich, full-bodied wines that verge on decadence.
