The history of Château Coutet dates back to the time of the Hundred Years War.
The Château Coutet - Premier Cru Sauternes
Founded as a defensive fortress by the English in the Barsac of the 13th century, it was first mentioned as a wine producer in 1643. Some of the historic installations still date back to the time of its creation. Since the 17th century, the vineyard area has been continuously expanded and the white wine typical of the Sauterne has been cultivated. This was mentioned in 1787 by the founding father of the United States and then ambassador to France, Thomas Jefferson, as the best of its kind, of which Barsac is still justly proud. in 1855, the Sauternes from Barsac joined the ranks of the Premier Cru Classé and has retained this classification to this day.
