Since 2011, The National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment (INRAE) has been studying the conception and evaluationof low environmental impact agrosystems at the Grande Ferrade site in Bordeaux.The grapes are harvested and vinified by Château Couhins, Cru Classé de Graves, independently of its own range of wines but with the same care. La Grande Ferrade is accessible in its youth, with a great fruit, easy to drink for an immediate gustatory pleasure. An authentic wine ideal for sharing with friends.
Château Couhins Blanc 2021, a Graves Grand Cru Classé, is based on the subtle aromatic expression of Sauvignon grapes grown on clay-limestone terroirs where they have matured slowly in climatic conditions that are particularly suited to them. Fruity notes of citrus (orange), pineapple and peach are present, along with floral fragrances and the characteristic minerality. On the palate, the wine takes its place from the outset, expressing itself with power and dynamism. The acidity, Couhins' signature limestone, is perfectly integrated into its curve. A wine of character that persists and endures. The quality of this great white wine, marked by its terroir, confirms the value of our agro-ecological choices in the vineyard and the importance of observation and feeling, particularly in our cellars.
Château Couhins blanc 2020 is based on the aromatic expression of ripe Sauvignon, with fruity notes of citrus (orange), pineapple and peach. On the palate, it has great salinity and a fine balance between volume on the attack and a welcome freshness that carries the wine through to the finish. A great textured white wine for the 2020 vintage.
Château Couhins blanc 2019 offers an expressive nose of ripe fruit, lemon, zesty orange, passion fruit and smoky notes.The graphite and saline palate, ample and acidic, lengthens to the salivating lemon, lemon confit finish. Balanced and accomplished, a fine representative of the appellation.
