About Château le Coteau
Château le Coteau is one of the last family properties of the famous Margaux appellation. Today, Eric cultivates his ancestors’ ground with passion and humility.
Château le Coteau is amongst some of the most well-known Grands Crus Classés. The vines are grown in some of ¬nest soils in the médoc in the Margaux region. Most of the plots are bordered by prestigious Grands Crus Classés. The soil is composed by gravel left by the Garonne river millions of years ago. These gravely soils are composed of pebbles and little stones originating from the Pyrénées. These soils are warm, poor in nutriments and very draining which suits the vines perfectly, helping the grapes mature. This terroir would be nothing without the Garonne micro-climate influence. Nature has found its place amongst the Château le Coteau vines. No herbicides or insecticides have ever been used and the plough allows the fauna and the flora to flourish.
