CHATEAU COUCHEROY PESSAC LEOGNAN ROGUE
"Couchiroy" or "Couche Roi" in Gascon. According to legend, one stormy evening, King Henri IV, returning from the Battle of Coutras, stopped here for a rest. This red Pessac-Léognan is easy-to-enjoy, smooth and fruity. It nevertheless displays the elegance and finesse typical of wines from this region of Bordeaux Graves. Château Coucheroy has classic blackcurrant and smoky aromas reminiscent of the atmosphere in a gentleman’s club.
Appearance: - Lovely, very deep garnet-red colour.
Nose: - This wine displays tremendous intensity and complexity on the nose. Swirling in the glass reveals a delicious array of red fruit, tobacco and vanilla aromas, underpinned by a touch of spice.
Mouth: - Starts out straightforward, with a noticeable, yet not excessive, tannic structure. The wine becomes full-bodied mid-palate, with smooth tannins, culminating in a wonderfully round finish. Notes of red fruit and liquorice fill the palate, making for an eminently enjoyable wine. This wonderfully balanced 2018 Couche Roy will gladly withstand ageing for a few years. The perfect partner for stuffed tomatoes, Basque-style chicken, or a nice steak.
