Chateau Coufran 2003

87 points

Haut Medoc, Bordeaux, France. 13%

I didn’t like this as much as the 1999 I had recently. In part the 1999 has an edge because it is four years older, but the 2003 vintage conditions are also part of it. This wine has some of that dry baked 2003 aroma but it isn’t porty, syrupy or even plummy, however it does lack vibrancy. It isn’t just the low acid, it’s that the fruit lacks depth.

But I shouldn’t be too harsh, as usual Coufran is a pretty good reasonably priced claret. The Wine Doctor web site has a useful profile of the chateau.
