The 2006 Chateau Coufran, hailing from the esteemed Haut-Medoc region, is a testament to the classic Bordeaux style. With an alcohol content ranging from 12.8 to 14%, this wine presents a medium-bodied profile that is both savory and traditional. Upon decanting for an hour, it reveals lean red fruits at its core, complemented by rustic tannins that lead to a structured finish. The vineyard, perched on a hillside with gravel and clay soils, contributes to the wine's distinct character. Aged in tight-grain French oak barrels for 12 months, the wine has developed a subtle complexity. It pairs exceptionally well with grilled red meats, roasted lamb, mature cheeses, and earthy vegetable stews.
