label of 2020 Château Coucheroy white
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon blanc 100%

Weather

2020 was marked by very mild temperatures and contrasting precipitation: heavy spring rainfall was followed by an intense summer drought. The fairly mild winter led to early bud break. The summer heat gave way to cool nights in late August, ideal for ripening grapes.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Clear, with an attractive pale yellow colour, studded with green reflections.

Nose

Medium intensity nose, very Sauvignon, marked by notes of white fruits (peach), grapefruit, mixed with a light buttery note, very pleasant.

Mouth

On the palate, it is well balanced, with freshness and a nice structure, typical of Sauvignon Blanc, with tasty notes of stone fruits (peach, apricot), but also of brioche. It is a wine that one will  serve with a salmon terrine with sorrel, a platter of oysters or even a blanquette of veal.
