Couhins Lurton Blanc 2015
France >Bordeaux >Pessac Leognan
(JS=91-92) Pear drop and lemon rind aromas and flavors. Full body. Fruity and straightforward. Minerally undertone to this. Intense. (RP=91) Tasted at the André Lurton tasting in London. The 2015 Couhins-Lurton Blanc was impressive from barrel and now in bottle it continues to perform at a high level. There is great concentration on the nose with scents of honeysuckle, white flowers, a touch of marmalade and quince. The palate is quite rounded on the entry although a rein is kept on the richness by the acidity. There are veins of orange pith and a touch of spice toward the long and persistent finish. This is very fine, quintessential dry white Bordeaux. Tasted June 2017. (WS=90) Solid, with gooseberry gelée, yellow apple and verbena notes that are melded together, underscored by a racy white asparagus edge. Pretty tarragon details line the finish. This has some depth in reserve. Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2019. 1,500 cases made.
