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 of 2016 Château Coucheroy red
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 45% / Merlot 55 %.

Weather

2016 was one of the finest vintages in the past 20 years. Winter was exceptionally wet and mild, and it rained a great deal in spring until June. However, the weather changed radically in mid-June, turning warm and quite dry, with cool nights. Ideal conditions for growing excellent wine grapes!

Tasting Comment

Appareance

It is a lovely, brilliant, deep, ruby-red colour.

Nose

The bouquet is attractively complex, with rich black-berry fruit aromas (blackberry, blackcurrant).

Mouth

On the palate, it is soft and well-balanced, with good structure. The overall impression is mouth-filling, complex, and velvety. This Coucheroy 2016 is very well-balanced, with red fruit aromas, hints of vanilla, and slightly oaky overtones, as well as a touch of mint. This perfectly charming wine makes a perfect accompaniment to a finely-marbled entrecôte steak or pork spare-ribs marinated in spices, as well as assorted, mature cheeses (Camembert, Roquefort, Edam, etc.).
