label château Coucheroy blanc 2012
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Elegant and Fruity

Grape blend

100% Sauvignon.

Weather

Spring was very trying, with considerable rainfall leading to fungal diseases of all sorts. This called for very close attention in the vines until the 14th of July, when the weather changed durably for the better.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Really very pale with green highlights. Tasted in autumn 2013, when this wine was in the flower of youth.

Nose

The bouquet immediately expresses floral aromas (acacia blossom and broom) and releases very volatile citrus (pink grapefruit, lemon) nuances when the wine is swirled in the glass. The Sauvignon Blanc variety has unmistakably left its mark…

Mouth

The wine is very fruity on the palate, which is even more complex than the bouquet, leaving a tremendously attractive impression of fruit salad (pear, peach, and citrus). The balance is perfect because the vivaciousness and precision lead into a long aftertaste. This makes a wonderful wine to drink with panfried Norway lobsters and citrus fruit or, more unusually, crab-stuffed sea urchins.
