Black cherries, thyme and herbs show in the perfume and on the medium-bodied, soft, slightly-salty, red berry palate, which wraps everything up nicely with a light touch of cocoa on the backend. This is going to be delicious on release. Drink from 2024-2034.

Chocolate, currants, peppery spices and dried flowers come to the front of the perfume. Soft, round, medium-bodied, and fruity with a focus on its drinkability, red polished fruits and the hint of chocolate overtones in the finish. Drink from 2023-2036.

Medium-bodied, soft, round and fruity with a focus on its cassis, plum, mocha and herb character on the nose and on the palate. I like the chocolate overtones in the finish. This is clearly a step up from previous vintages. 88-90 Pts

Clearly things are on a roll here at Coufran, as this competes for the finest wine ever produced at the property. Medium-bodied, with flowers, herbs, spice, cocoa and red fruits show up easily in the nose and on the earthy, plummy, round, polished palate, leaving you with a bit of espresso, cocoa and plums in the finish. Drink from 2023-2033.

Better in bottle than in barrel, the wine is round and fruity, with nice chocolate overtones to its sweet plummy character that show on the nose and soft textured palate.

Round, soft textured and simple, you'll find red fruits in a forward style. Truly without faults, this is already easy to imbibe.

From the highest percentage of Merlot in the Left Bank, while there are no faults in the wine, there is no real character or personality either. This is a wine to drink on the young side. The wine ws produced from a blend of 85% Merlot andf 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Too much oak for the black cherry dominated, round wine leaves this feeling far too woody at the moment. Perhaps time will help this come together, if the oak fades.
