Chateau Coufran 1993 - Haut-Medoc CRU BOURGEOIS SUPERIEUR
Frequently called "Pomerol of the Médoc", the originality of Château Coufran is in geography and in the selection, the first singular first of its plantings. Its vines, planted almost exclusively Merlot, climb the ridges overlooking the mouth of the Gironde. The precocity of this grape makes wonders on this gravel soil dry or sandy, particularly well exposed. The vineyard produces fine wines, elegant and rich in flavor, while being bold and very balanced. With a traditional aging in oak barrels, this wine is synonymous with fleshy, rich, soft, developing a touch of ripe fruit when it is still young. Recently promoted Cru Bourgeois in the revision of the 1932 classification, which occurred in June 2003, Coufran castle is among the leading group of Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc.

Proper vintage despite difficult weather conditions. Indeed, after a hot and sunny summer, a rainstorm is abbattirent on the vineyard until the end of the harvest. For the Medoc wines are inflexible in their youth. However, Saint-Emilion, Pomerol and Graves, harvested before Medoc, show little trace of dilution. The wines are characterized by depth and unexpected firmness. The dry whites are aromatic. The sweet, elegant and lightweight, lacking structure.
