label of 2016 white Château de Coucheroy
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Elegant and Fruity

Weather

2016 was one of the finest vintages in the past 20 years. Winter was exceptionally wet and mild, and it rained a great deal in spring until June. However, the weather changed radically in mid-June, turning warm and quite dry, with cool nights. Ideal conditions for growing excellent wine grapes!

Tasting Comment

Appareance

This incredibly clear Coucheroy 2016 is a lovely lemon yellow colour with occasional green highlights.

Nose

The bouquet displays citrus fruit aromas (grapefruit, lemon), followed by delicious notes of pineapple and white fruit (peach).

Mouth

Starts out fruity and sumptuous on the palate. This Sauvignon Blanc is very present, revealing wonderful vivacity and freshness. The palate expresses the same aromas of white fruits (peach, nectarine) found on the nose. The ideal wine for vol-au-vents, fish terrine or delicious cheese platters.
