Chateau Coutinel

Year's Best of Southwest France 2021 -- Wine and Spirits Magazine

2020 Chateau Coutinel Braucol...$19.99

Made from the grape is Braucal
Anne Arbcau and her brother, Gérard, manage this family estate based in Labastide-St Pierre, and produce a range of wines including this Braucol-replete with bright plum-skin flavors and ripe tannins. Initially powered by its acidity, a dexterous transfer to the tannins manages the weight of the fruit.
Rated 91/100 Wine and Spirits Magazine

2019 Chateau Coutinel Negrette...$19.99
Made from the grape is Negrette
Immediately floral, this wine has an earthy tinge to its red fruit, as if mycelia fruited strawberries instead of mushrooms. Leave it in the fridge overnight to chill it for a hike and a picnic.
Rated 91/100 Wine and Spirits Magazine

2020 Domaine Coutinel Malbec...$19.99
One of a series of limited-quantity, single-variety wines, this Malbec (or Côt to use the local name) is structured, with tannins as well as rich black fruits. At the same time it has a light touch, with acidity and fruitiness already balanced. Drink from 2022.
