It's no surprise that Coufran once again offers an amazing value in 2015 - we've been enjoying this wonderful Haut Medoc for years now, and the 2015 vintage is one of the best. Coufran has an unusual Merlot heavy blend that always offers a lovely amount of very smooth textured dark red fruit above earthy and minerally notes. I predict the 2015 will again age very well, as the rich amount of fruit is balanced nicely by great structure - at this price it will be tempting to drink it up early, but a few years in the cellar will truly reward you.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
