Château Couhins

Pessac-Léognan
0,75
Red
We are great fans of the white wine from Couhins but this year, it is also the red wine that is also a stunner. Offering a very dark and glossy colour, with lovely brightness, soft on the nose, very perfumed with aromas of lily of the valley, lilac, peonies, violets. On the palate the wine is very pure and sweet, pretty with ripe black fruits, with an excellent structure mid palate and finishes with the same floral perfume as on the nose. Very well composed.

The story
Appellation

Created quite recently, in 1987, Pessac-Léognan is a sub appellation of the Graves, although the region as a whole claims to be the oldest wine region in Bordeaux dating back to the Roman times.
