Winemaker's Notes:

Undoubtedly the flagship of the Aubert vineyards since over a century. This unique terroir, one of the few located on the limestone plateau on the outskirts of the village of Saint-Emilion, produces a Grand Cru Classé of international renown with subtle and mellow aromas.
My Notes:

About Chateau La Couspaude:

Chateau La Couspaude is located in the heart of Saint Emilion, near the famous monolithic church carved out of solid rock. La Couspaude has been the pride and joy of the Aubert family for over a century. In fact, the Auberts have been making fine wine in Bordeaux for over two centuries and have unquestionably maintained the family tradition of quality and respect for the terroir to the present day.
