Château Coucheroy Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Coucheroy Rouge

"Couchiroy" or "Couche Roi" in Gascon. According to legend, one stormy evening, King Henri IV, returning from the Battle of Coutras, stopped here for a rest. This red Pessac-Léognan is easy-to-enjoy, smooth and fruity. It nevertheless displays the elegance and finesse typical of wines from this region of Bordeaux Graves. Château Coucheroy has classic blackcurrant and smoky aromas reminiscent of the atmosphere in a gentleman’s club...


2014 red Château Coucheroy label
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 45% / Merlot 55 %.

Weather

Winter and spring were very mild, but the summer of 2014 did not live up to our expectations: it rained heavily in July, and August was much cooler than usual. However, starting in September, a miraculous Indian summer with high temperatures, was very favourable to ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

This Château Coucheroy 2014 is a brilliant, relatively deep, ruby-red colour.

Nose

It has an expressive bouquet, with delicate toasty nuances, as well as hints of red and black cherries and spices.

Mouth

On the palate, this wine offers a lovely blend of fruit (plums and redcurrants), as well as toasty and smoky nuances. The well-integrated oak follows through in the long, rich, soft flavours on the palate. This well-balanced wine is particularly delicious with roast chicken and whole, unpeeled garlic cloves, served with fried mushrooms.
