Château Vieux Pourret Saint-Émilion Grand Cru AOC

Château Vieux Pourret is very well located on the Saint-Emilion plateau, on the locality called “Pourret”. Vieux Pourret’s vines are for the most part in the town of Saint-Emilion itself (with a clay/sand mix in the soil) but also in Saint-Hippolyte, where the soil consists of clayey limestone. Château Vieux Pourret has been created for over 50 years and now the property is owned by Emmanuel Coudroy and run by his wife Nathalie, being the estate manager, which, starting from the vintage 2012, didn’t continue to make this wine organic but they rather elaborated a fruity wine with a melted and elegant mouth, really worthy of a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru.
