A visit to Château Soutard is a historical journey and an opportunity to share a very French art of living. Overlooked by the bell tower of Saint-Émilion church, the estate rejoices in its glorious past while at the same time asserting a true spirit of modernity. Its wines reflect this, possessing a unique style that echoes the formidable potential of the limestone plateau. Acquired in 2007, Château Soutard has just undergone an impressive renovation programme.


Château Soutard, Grand Cru Classé

The winery

Location

Situated on a unique limestone plateau where all the Saint-Émilion grands crus are grown, Soutard is a 30 hectare estate. The château itself, with farm buildings on either side, is unusually large for the region. It is located in the centre of the vineyards and enjoys a north/south aspect. It represents the true heart of the estate and overlooks the nearby valley.

Five centuries of history at Soutard Soutard past and present.

Historians have found the earliest traces of the estate in notary records dating from the 16th century. The main part of the house, with its classically disciplined design so typical of the 18th century, was built between 1765. In 2006, AG2R La Mondiale, acquired the estate with the firm intention of perpetuating its magnificent history.

Château Soutard is firmly committed to opening its doors to the outside world, welcoming visitors, sharing a sense of French art de vivre, and showing people what a Bordeaux wine estate is really like: a thrilling prospect for anyone interested in wine. Soutard’s ambition is to offer as much freedom as possible, with à la carte programmes enabling visitors to enjoy an unforgettable stay: by day or by night, in the vineyards, in the cellars, or in the kitchens learning how to prepare delicious château dishes and how to choose the right wine for the right food. Some visitors come with friends; others come to meet wine buffs; others still can enjoy a romantic break for two, or just a great day out with the family. Designed as a natural extension of the Château, with its classic French-style ceilings and its carefully designed interior, the Orangery welcomes visitors who wish to linger for a while after their visit. Books on wine and a range of winethemed items are available for sale in the charming atmosphere of a conservatory. Wines  from the estate are also on sale (52 available vintages), and visitors can sample them along with delicious regional specialities. The idea is to give visitors the opportunity to take their time, so that they can fully absorb the magic of the place.

Staying for a night, a day or a week, it’s now possible since September 2015. 4 bedrooms, a fantastic “fumoir”, a luxury dining room with our own dishes collection by Luneville and Raynaud. 100%, eighteen century.
