The Beautiful Structure of a Fresh and Fruity Grand Cru Classé from Graves

A Cru Classé de Graves located in the Pessac-Léognan appellation in the south of the Bordeaux region, Château Couhins reigns over an exceptional terroir highlighted through beautiful wines of consistent quality by INRA, owner of the property since 1968.

The 2017 vintage of Château Couhins Rouge aptly illustrates the values that define the style of the property: an expression of the terroir through great wines produced in ways that respect the vineyard and the environment.

The famous gravel soils of Château Couhins allow the heat of the sun to be stored during the day, so that it can warm the vines during the night and protect them from frost. This allows for an optimal ripening of the grapes. The clay soils of the vineyard prevent excessive water stress of the vine by soaking in the water. Finally, the slope of the superb gravel ridge ensures ideal soil drainage throughout the year.

2017 was a vintage of great challenges. The frost of April 2017 did not spare the Château Couhins vineyard. Extreme care was taken in selecting vines affected by the frost and the surviving parcels were vinified one-by-one.

Containing a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (49%), complemented by Merlot (34%), Cabernet Franc (6%) and Petit Verdot (11%), the Château Couhins Rouge 2017 displays the profile of a superbly balanced and charming wine. The fruit, rich in anthocyanins, reveals a beautiful colour. Intense black fruit notes characterise the aromatic palette, leading to a palate with a solid structure balanced out by soft tannins with a silky grain. This wine offers beautiful freshness in the mouth and a remarkable length. A nice wine from Graves, rewarding the team’s efforts during a challenging vintage.
