Description

96 points Jeb Dunnuck
“This estate makes a brilliant white, and their 2020 Château Couhins Blanc is pure gold, offering a bright citrus and lemon zest core as well as lots of white flowers and honeyed mineral-like nuances. Medium-bodied, bright, racy, yet also concentrated, it's going to benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age and keep for two decades.”

95 points Decanter
“Freshly shelled peas on the nose with green apple aromas. Zingy and full of life straight away, vibrant yet so well controlled. A beautiful glass of wine with excellent acidity, weight and texture. It has a lovely salty, iodine tang to the lemon, lime, orange rind, pineapple, grapefruit pith and green apple. Thrilling and vibrant but clean and crisp. So well worked, focused so give this a year or two for it to settle and expand but this is a great white from 2020. A wine to buy, and more importantly drink and enjoy.”

Vinous Reverie Notes
The history of property began in the 17th century making it one of the oldest vineyards in the Graves region. At that time, it consisted of two ancient wine-growing properties: the Domaine de la Gravette and that of the Pont de Langon, which through the course of history became one, giving birth to Chateau Couhins. In 1883, the farm fell to a well-known Bordeaux merchant, Constantin Hanappier, before it’s ownership was integrated, through marriages and inheritances, with the Gaston family, already owner of the Calon Segur and Capbern in Saint Estephe. Currently the property is owned by INRAE and the 6-hectare vineyards are planted to 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon.
