Critic reviews
"I was blown away by the quality of the 2022 Château Couhins Blanc, and I'd put this beauty up with the crème de la crème of the vintage. A blend of 93% Sauvignon Blanc and 7% Sauvignon Gris, it has a vibrant nose of bright citrus, honeyed flowers, chalky minerality, and spice. Tight, focused, and incredibly precise on the palate, it brings considerable richness and concentration while staying clean, light on its feet, and elegant. This is a "wow" white – bravo to the team here!"
Jeb Dunnuck, May 2023

"The 2022 Couhins Blanc is a bright punchy white built on a core of Sauvignon Blanc, with just a touch (7%) of Sauvignon Gris. Citrus peel, dried herbs and flowers all race out of the glass. This is one of the most distinctive dry whites in Bordeaux."
Antonio Galloni, April 2023

"Intense varietal character, with juicy green apple and citrus, excellent lift and grip through the palate, touch of candyfloss sweetness reflects the vintage, but this is impressive and mouthwatering. Ageing is split between 14% new oak, 57% one and two year barrels and 29% in wooden and stainless steel vats. Stéphane Derenoncourt consultant since 2017."
Jane Anson, April 2023
