Label 2014 Château Coucheroy white
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Elegant and Fruity

Grape blend

100% Sauvignon

Weather

Winter and spring were very mild, but the summer of 2014 did not live up to our expectations: it rained heavily in July, and August was much cooler than usual. However, starting in September, a miraculous Indian summer with high temperatures, was very favourable to ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Brilliant very pale yellow colour.

Nose

Elegant, slightly oaky nose with a wide range of aromas, including hints of citrus and some smoky overtones.

Mouth

Great balance and aromatic complexity with a long fresh aftertaste of citrus (orange peel, lemon) and flowers (broom). This delicate, elegant wine is a treat with fish, seafood, and salads.

Consumption period

2016 - 2020
