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...


2012 Château Coucheroy red label
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 45% / Merlot 55 %.

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

Appareance

2012 Coucheroy has a beautiful clear red colour with brick-red highlights. 

Nose

The bouquet displays overtones of elegant oak, but this in no way overpowers the fine red fruit aromas.

Mouth

2012 Coucheroy is smooth and pleasant. It features notes of sweet pepper, blackcurrant leaves, and menthol that blend harmoniously. These aromatics are highlighted and complemented by starters such as mushroom soup, a hearty dish like cassoulet, or a cheese platter.

Consumption period

2015 - 2022
