A savory red Grand Vin from Haut-Medoc
A great vintage for Bordeaux, 2018 marks a very good year for Chateau Coufran, an important reference in Haut-Medoc.
Located in Haut-Medoc, not far from Pauillac, Chateau Coufran overlooks a vineyard of 76 hectares ideally placed at the edge of the estuary.
The wine of Chateau Coufran is often called "the Pomerol of Medoc" because of the high percentage of Merlot used in the blend. The Chateau Coufran 2018 is thus made from a blend of Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%). The wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels (including one-fourth in new wood).
Well-rounded and supple, the Chateau Coufran 2018 seduces with its generous palate and its persistent finish. A beautiful reference of Haut-Medoc in a vintage that promises a beautiful evolution over the years.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple, the 2018 Coufran is a little broody to begin, giving way to pronounced notes of smoked meats, fertile loam, truffles and tapenade over a core of Black Forest cake, warm cassis and blackberry pie. Full, rich and decadently fruited in the mouth, it has a firm, grainy frame and just enough freshness, finishing long and savory.
