2016 Couhins White
Simple and fresh. Delicate on the palate with citrus and quince. Mineral finish. Very special as this is100% Sauvignon with no Semillon; almost for immediate drinking. Light oaked. Dirt cheap for the price; getting consistent and nice scores from all tasters. Great summer drink.
The estate, with a total area of 6 hectares, benefits from a terroir of clay hillsides on a limestone base. The ageing of the wine is carried out in oak barrels (of which 10% are of new oak), for 9 months on average. The 2016 vintage blends 93% Sauvignon Blanc with 7% Sauvignon Gris.
