Chateau Couhins, under the skilled guidance of winemaker Alix Bern, presents the Chateau Couhins Blanc 2020, a stellar example of Pessac-Leognan white wine. This exquisite Sauvignon Blanc showcases the rich history and expertise of Chateau Couhins, a winery with origins in the 17th century and a reputation for crafting wines that embody the essence of their terroir.
This vintage, crafted predominantly from Sauvignon Blanc with a hint of Semillon, emanates from the unique clay-limestone hillside and sandy-graveleux plateau of Chateau Couhins.

Upon tasting, the Chateau Couhins Blanc 2020 reveals its true character. The palate is treated to a harmonious balance of zesty citrus flavors, echoing the aroma with notes of lemon, lime, and grapefruit pith, alongside tropical hints of pineapple. The wine’s texture is beautifully crafted, showing excellent acidity, weight, and a controlled vibrancy that is both thrilling and refined. 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.
The critical acclaim for Chateau Couhins Blanc 2020 has been resounding. Jeb Dunnuck awarded it 96 points, praising its bright citrus core, medium body, and potential for aging gracefully over two decades.

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.
JD 96
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.
