2003 Coufran, Haut-Médoc
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This primarily Merlot-based wine represents an excellent effort from this property. This deep plum/ruby/purple-tinged hussy boasts plenty of jammy black cherry fruit interwoven with notions of smoke, vanilla, and white chocolate. It is a sexy, up-front, fleshy effort with low acidity as well as abundant fruit, glycerin, and texture. Consume it over the next 7-8 years.
Lots of plum, berry and cherry aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a long finish. Very tight now. Give it time. Best after 2007.
