Château Coucheroy Red

"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 château Coucheroy red 2010
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 50% / Merlot 50%.

Weather

Winter was harsh (many days with frost) and spring rather chilly. There was a great deal of sunshine in 2010 and a long period of drought from 21 June to late September, which was favourable for ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

People who enjoy Château Coucheroy can rest assured: the 2010 vintage is as deeply-coloured at the 2009.

Nose

It also has a strong personality, as attested by its fragrant bouquet with fruit and vanilla overtones.

Mouth

The wine is powerful and chewy on the palate with the richness and structure to ensure good ageing. It makes a fine accompaniment to cuisine from Southwest France and other fine dishes. An elegant Pessac-Léognan.

Ratings and reviews

 - Note : 
15.00 / 20

A bouquet of ripe red fruit and spice with balsamic and empyreumatic overtones. Starts out quite soft, but asserts itself more on the aftertaste. Excellent, very smooth tannin. A little bottle age will make this wine even more enjoyable.
