2021 Château Coufran  (Haut-Médoc) 86
Dark red currants, cherries and a touch of espresso are what you initially notice before finding the medium-bodied, round-textured, cherry-filled mid-palate and savory-edged, red pit fruit finish. Drink from 2023-2033. 88-87

2020 Château Coufran  (Haut-Médoc) 89
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

2019 Château Coufran  (Haut-Médoc) 89
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.

2017 Château Coufran  (Haut-Médoc) 85
Round, soft textured and simple, you'll find red fruits in a forward style. Truly without faults, this is already easy to imbibe.

With the highest percentage of Merlot planted in the Medoc, the estate was able to produce a medium bodied, coffee, cherry, herb and earthy wine that will be at its best on release. 84-86 Pts

2010 Château Coufran  (Haut-Médoc) 85
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.
