Print the sheet

Ownership & history:

Château Vieux Pourret has been created for over 50 years. The property is owned by the Coudroy family. They also own different estates in AOP: Pomerol, Lalande de Pomerol, Saint-Emilion and Montagne Saint-Emilion.

Vineyard & location:

Château Vieux Pourret is very well located on the Saint-Emilion plateau, on the locality "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 and other areas in clayey limestone soil.
The property is composed of 8,70 hectares of vines and yearly production is about 57000 bottles.

Harvest, vinification & ageing:

Winemaking of Château Vieux Pourret is in the traditional Bordeaux style, in order to produce a coloured, balanced and elegant wine.
Ageing is carried out partially in French oak barrels for between 6 months and a year, the rest being aged in concrete.

Tasting:

This is a rich, opulent wine, full of smoke and chocolate from the barrel-ageing. It is great to drink by itself, but in terms of matching with food, venison stew goes excellently with it. Hard cheeses also make an excellent accompaniment, as do chocolate-based desserts provided that they are not too sweet.
