Marks and reviews
Located in the Haut-Médoc and owned by the Miailhe family since 1924, Château Coufran is an atypical property in the appellation, particularly because of the blend of its wines which are dominated by Merlot. This unique character in the Haut-Médoc has earned Château Coufran the nickname "Pomerol of the Médoc."
Château Coufran 2022 is an Haut-Médoc wine that stems from a 76-hectare vineyard. The vines, on average 50 years old, are planted on gravel on marl soils, resting on a clayey subsoil. The vineyard is certified Aquitaine Environmentally Conscious Agriculture (Agriculture Respectueuse de l'Environnement en Aquitaine - AREA) level 2 and High Environmental Value (HVE) level 3.
The year 2022 was marked by a hailstorm on 20 June, which had an impact on the vineyard and yields.
Winemaking and ageing
The grapes wee harvested by hand and by machine. Vinification in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats followed by 12 months' ageing in French oak barrels.
Château Coufran 2022 is a blend of Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%).
