    Rubis profond de robe, ce vin bien fait et savoureux présente un fruité de cerise et de moka nuancé de chêne épicé, ainsi qu'une finale modérément longue. Source : Robert Parker (1/99)

    Cuvée presentation

    Château Coufran produces elegant, richly-flavoured wines, which also manage to be full-bodied and very well-balanced.

    Thanks to traditional ageing in oak barrels, this wine has a classic, rich suppleness and develops a hint of ripe fruit when it is still young. Recently promoted to Cru Bourgeois Supérieur status in the 2003 revision of the 1932 classification, Château Coufran has positioned itself among the leading crus bourgeois of the Haut-Médoc.

    Information about domain Château Coufran

    Frequently described as Médoc Pomerol, Château Coufran's special character is due to its geographical location and the choice of grape variety, which might at first seem unusual. Consisting almost entirely of Merlot, the vines cover hilltops that look down over the Gironde estuary. Merlot's tendency to ripen early works wonderfully on this dry gravel/sandy terroir which is particularly well oriented.
