Tour and tasting : Discovery of a Grand Cru Classé from Graves

Château Couhins, Grand Cru Classé, Villenave d'Ornon, Bordeaux

4.7/5 39 ratings

Detailed description

Presentation of the winery history and soils. Then, description of the wine-producing process and the use of the last innovations from agronomical studies. Visit of the tank room and the wine storehouse to show the wine-making method and the working philosophy of the estate. At last, tasting of four wines:

- Couhins white wines are famous for their delicate smell of spring flowers, its scope, its vivacity and persistence in mouth which is due to the role of the Sauvignon grape variety.

- The red wine is made from a hard stoned soil, symbol of its appellation. Tannins are soft and the aromas are elegant with notes of raspberry and cedar. Plus, the smell has a beautiful delicacy enhanced by complex aromas. So this wine embodies perfectly the elegance of all the great wines from Graves.
