Weather

The 2017 vintage was one of the earliest on record. The growing season was marked by a dry winter and spring (46% less rainfall than usual), accompanied by temperatures 2°C above average (except for the frost in April). This dry summer weather was ideal for ripening the seeds until late August.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

2017 Château Coucheroy is a brilliant, pale-yellow colour with green and silver highlights.

Nose

The first impression on the nose features oak and vanilla aromas. Swirling in the glass reveals smooth aromatic complexity with notes of candied fruits, such as citrus and apricot. All in all, a powerful bouquet.

Mouth

Starts off smooth and round, becoming full-bodied mid-palate, before culminating in a wonderfully fresh aftertaste. The pronounced fruity nose carries through to the palate, with notes of candied citrus. This delicious wine goes beautifully with seafood, warm oysters or blanquette of veal.

This lively and well-balanced wine featuring an attractive yellow colour with green highlights, a floral bouquet and well-structured tannins, has all the hallmarks of a classic vintage. Best enjoyed between 2019 and 2021.
