2013 vintage at Château Couhins-Lurton : retrospective and first impressions...

Will the 2013 vintage be a great year for Château Couhins-Lurton? Once again, we must say the answer is yes!

This year also marked the beginning of a new collaboration between Vignobles André Lurton and the world famous oenologist, Michel Rolland. Assisted by Mickaël Laizet, he now follows the red wines at both estates: Château La Louvière and Château Couhins-Lurton.

Michel Rolland  will work in tandem with Professeur Denis Dubourdieu, who will continue to oversee white wine making at all the estates.

2013 Château Couhins-Lurton: a new quality-oriented policy worthy of a Graves great growth.

A reorganised winemaking team was responsible for this vintage of Château Couhins-Lurton in the framework of a new quality-based programme implemented at all our Pessac-Léognan estates. Revolving around precision winemaking, the new orientation succeeded in revealing, perhaps more than ever before, the outstanding potential of Château Couhins-Lurton's terroir in an especially challenging vintage.

 The white wines of this Graves great growth may have had very low yields this year, but the freshness and quality are altogether remarkable.
