Chateau Coufran 2000

84 points

Haut-Medoc. 13%

Solid simple old-fashioned claret. A bit muddy and minerally with a touch of shell-fish.

The structure is good, they just need to clean things up in the vineyard and/or winery and let the fruit sing more clearly. I’m sure this will happen, it may have already happened. Will I miss these old-fashioned minor wines when they disappear? No, so long as they aren’t replaced by souped up wines.

  1. I have a bottle of this wine vintage 1975.
    Does anyone have an idea what this bottle is worth?
    This is just out of curiosity. I am going to drink the wine tonight.
