A delicate salinity and iodine tang give way to a nuanced, mineral finish, displaying the wine’s superb structure and the influence of its terroir.

    Critical Acclaim

    DEC 95
    Decanter
    Freshly shelled peas on the nose with green apple aromas. Zingy and full of life straight away, vibrant yet so well controlled. A beautiful glass of wine with excellent acidity, weight and texture. It has a lovely salty, iodine tang to the lemon, lime, orange rind, pineapple, grapefruit pith and green apple. Thrilling and vibrant but clean and crisp. So well worked, focused so give this a year or two for it to settle and expand but this is a great white from 2020. A wine to buy, and more importantly drink and enjoy. Drinking Window: 2025-2036.

    Jeb Dunnuck
    This estate makes a brilliant white, and their 2020 Château Couhins Blanc is pure gold, offering a bright citrus and lemon zest core as well as lots of white flowers and honeyed mineral-like nuances. Medium-bodied, bright, racy, yet also concentrated, it's going to benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age and keep for two decades. Drink: 2026-2046.
    VIN 93
    Vinous
    The 2020 Couhins Blanc, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, is bright, crisp and super-expressive. White pepper, sage, mint and tomato leaf play off a core of citrus-infused fruit. I very much like the energy here. Drink: 2023-2028.
    FAL 93
    Falstaff
    Light greenish yellow with silver reflections. Hints of vanilla and pineapple, a touch of orange blossom, subtle herbal savouriness: an inviting bouquet. Complex, white apple, tight structure, a touch of wood, mineral, delicately salty on the finish. The wine is well balanced and is a harmonious companion at the table.
