Château Coucheroy Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Coucheroy Rouge

"Couchiroy" or "Couche Roi" in Gascon. According to legend, one stormy evening, King Henri IV, returning from the Battle of Coutras, stopped here for a rest. This red Pessac-Léognan is easy-to-enjoy, smooth and fruity. It nevertheless displays the elegance and finesse typical of wines from this region of Bordeaux Graves. Château Coucheroy has classic blackcurrant and smoky aromas reminiscent of the atmosphere in a gentleman’s club...


label of 2019 Château Coucheroy red
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 40 % / Merlot 60 %.

Weather

2019 was marked by a fairly mild winter, resulting in early bud break. Spring rainfall was scarce and drought conditions set in in early summer. Rainfall in August provided a welcome relief for winegrowers.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Colour is a deep garnet red.

Nose

Nose is intense and complex. After aeration, a tasty mixture of red fruits and vanilla notes emerges from the glass. A hint of spice enhances the whole.

Mouth

The attack is frank. A nice volume emerges in the middle of the mouth, with well-melted tannins. The finish is very round. Notes of red fruit and liquorice dominate on the palate and bring a lot of gourmet pleasure. Well-balanced, this is a wine that can wait a few more years or be enjoyed now, with lentil soup, tomato pie, or even baked beef.
