100% Sauvignon Blanc
Appearance: Château Couhins-Lurton 2017 is a crystal clear, pale yellow colour with green highlights.
Nose: The bouquet reveals a symphony of generous overtones, including white peach and tropical fruits (pineapple, passion fruit), enlivened with spicy nuances (white pepper).
Mouth: Lively tension on the palate. This soft, round wine is very elegant with white fruit (peach and nectarine) and citrus (grapefruit) aromas. In addition to great length, this wine displays beautiful minerality, with hints of vanilla and oaky overtones. The slightly iodized finish gives a very pleasant aftertaste. Makes a lovely accompaniment to cod grilled with herbs, monkfish cooked in saffron sauce or goat’s cheese.
Vinous – February 5, 2018
The 2017 Couhins-Lurton Blanc has a lovely fresh, vibrant bouquet with notes of lemon zest, Granny Smith apples and a touch of grapefruit. The palate is well balanced, quite primal compared to its peers with grapefruit and lemon rind, gently unfolding towards the finish with a peppery finish [2020- 2030]. (Neal Martin)
Le Guide Hachette – Edition 2020 – April 9, 2019
This clear, brilliant-coloured wine is still fairly closed in its aromatic expression, yet already displays enticing notes of citrus and brioche. Round, rich, and full-bodied on the palate with a lovely long aftertaste, it stands as a testimony to this high-quality vintage. Best enjoyed between 2021 and 2025.
Attractive lime-leaf, green-mango and lime aromas here. The palate has a vibrant feel with attractive, fresh, tropical and citrus-fruit flavors on offer. 100% sauvignon blanc. Drink or hold. (October 1, 2020)
This is loaded with bright, honeysuckle-gilded flavors of yellow apple, white peach and pineapple core, as well as verbena and shortbread accents that hang deftly in the background, all set against a bracing salted butter note. Lovely now, but cellar briefly for a slightly broader effect. Drink now through 2024. – James Molesworth (April 2, 2019)
