    What a pleasant surprise 2001 vintage has become! This vintage held itself so beautifully and the wines have become more elegant and sophisticated by time. Beautiful flavor profile of plum and cherries, medium yet abundant with flavors body, sweet soft tannin and great smooth finish.Enjoy this wine now and put some aside since there is still a good 5-6 years left of the liveliness of it.

    I can only imagine the look of satisfaction on the face of Louis Miailhe when he finally tasted his new merlot blend back in the ‘30s. See, Chateau Coufran was in veritable crisis mode; the cabernet just wasn’t getting ripe. So he replanted it to 85% merlot, and today you can taste the results and the magic in this 2001 vintage. It has earthiness, savoriness, leather, anise — but at its center is a beautiful blackberry fruit core whose ripeness can be attributed, in part, to Louis Miailhe. A beautiful wine, with a beautiful story at a very affordable price.

    This Château has been owned by the Miailhe family since 1924 and is unusual for the Haut-Médoc as they have 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon planted where traditionally Cabernet Sauvignon is the favorite here on the Left-Bank. This 2001 was my value choice for our weekly Steak and Claret night (Must Try!) and it was more than exceptional; certainly at this price point. The wine still had acceptable power and plummy juiciness. The tannins are still surprisingly present and very well integrated which are a lovely match for your favorite steak, I only hope that this will be your 'Claret' as well. This wine is only classified as a Cru Bourgeois but hits just as hard as some of the big Châteaux.
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2020

    This hearty and husky wine has aged beautifully and is drinking perfectly right now. Plenty of deep blackberry fruit fills out the middle while the acidity of the vintage shines through with youthful freshness. The tannins on this Old School classic have resolved nicely and the long leathery finish begs for some hearty food.
