Another potential sleeper of the vintage and one of the best Coufrans I have tasted in many years, the 2010 is a plump, fleshy, chewy effort (there is always a lot of Merlot in this blend) revealing a deep plum/ruby/purple color as well as sweet black cherry and mocha notes interwoven with background oak. The wine’s enticing texture, purity and opulence suggest consumption over the next 10-12 years will be warranted. Drink: 2013-2023

The purchase of Château Coufran dates from 1924 thanks to the reparation of damages from the 1st World War awarded to the family of Mrs Louis Miailhe. The vines of Château Coufran are planted in 76 hectares of excellent gravely soil situated in Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne, a town near Saint-Estèphe in the district of Pauillac, in the HAUT-MEDOC appellation. Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne draws maximum benefit from the nearby estuary of the Gironde and of the Atlantic.
