About the Producer
Château le Coteau
Château Le Coteau is a small estate in Margaux that neighbours Rauzan Ségla, Giscours and Issan.
Its 12ha is planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. No herbicides or insecticides are used. The soil, composed of pebbles and gravel, is very poor and retains a lot of heat – perfectly suited to cultivation of vines. The high temperature is mediated by the climatic influence of the nearby Garonne river.
