2021 Château Couhins Blanc  (Pessac-Léognan) 93
Flowers, yellow citrus, pineapple, mango with just a touch of white peach in the background of the nose and palate. Balanced between its racy freshness and creamy textures, this is a contender for the best white produced in the history of Couhins. Drink from 2023-2032. 93-93

Bitingly fresh, lemon rind, grapefruit and almost ripe, but not quite, green apples. Drink this over the new few years for its crispness. Drink from 2023-2026. 89-89

2019 Château Couhins  (Pessac-Léognan) 91
Wet earth, forest leaf, herbs, tobacco wrapper and cherries shine in the perfume. Medium-bodied, elegant, sweet and fresh, this will drink with pleasure early in life, but it has the ability to age and evolve for 15 or more years with ease. Drink from 2023-2036.

Bright, lifted citrus, green apple and a hint of yellow tropical fruit really pops here. On the palate, it gets even better with all that fresh-squeezed yellow citrus fruit. 91-93 Pts

2018 Château Couhins  (Pessac-Léognan) 92
Ripe, elegant, soft, smoky, medium-bodied fruits with a nice sense of lift and refinement on the palate which carries through to the cigar box tinged finish. This is much nicer in bottle than in barrel.

2018 Château Couhins Blanc  (Pessac-Léognan) 93
Creamy, lush, round and fruity, with sweet yellow citrus, pineapple, mango and other tropical nuances. Juicy and refreshing, this is showing really well and should get even better with a few years of age.

2017 Château Couhins  (Pessac-Léognan) 89
Soft, fresh red fruits, wafts of tobacco and smoke work perfectly with this medium bodied, elegant style. It will not only be enchanting upon release but it can age for a decade as well.

2017 Château Couhins Blanc  (Pessac-Léognan) 91
Bright, crisp, fresh and stony, the wine is packed with a trifecta of lemons, oranges and limes. Equally crisp and refreshing on the palate, this should age nicely, yet if you want a jolt of sweet, juicy citrus, it's nice young too.

2016 Château Couhins  (Pessac-Léognan) 91
Medium-bodied, elegant, fresh and juicy, the wine offers smoke, espresso, truffle, tobacco and dark red berries. In the end note, the deep red pit fruits are fresh, sweet and smoky. Give this 3-5 years and it will really show nicely.

Medium-bodied, this is already showing accents of truffle, tobacco and dark red berries. The wine is round, fresh and sweet. In the end note, the black cherry and cassis are ripe, round and lush, leaving you with a touch of tobacco in the finish.

Starting to decline, you can already sense nut and sherry aromas creeping, this requires drinking as soon as possible.

Leafy, olive and cedar notes crowd out most of the red fruits. The finish is salty, with bright red berries in the end note. This requires consumption sooner than later.

You can see the age in the color, but the nose continues delivering flowers, honey and citrus. The fruit leans to the orange and yellow citrus side. There is still freshness and sweet lemons in the finish. This has aged nicely.
