    An old K&L favorite and a bit unusual for a Left Bank property since the vineyards here are planted almost exclusively to Merlot rather than Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2004 Chateau Coufran, Haut-Médoc is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. Surprisingly ripe for the vintage, the wine displays rich, plummy fruit and soft tannins. Delicious, and a great value. Drink now.

    The Miailhe family, owners of Coufran also have Château Verdignan in their portfolio. Coufran 2004 is structured, with dusty tannins, but over the rounded, smooth, almost jammy fruits, an accessible wine, showing good fresh acidity to finish. Tasted july 2018-old school Bordeaux at its best. Red berry flavors. Delicious value!
    Drink from 2018 to 2021

    This is classic, aged Bordeaux under $20 at its best! It has full-fledged, very pretty red fruit, balanced out by savory notes of leather and sous-bois and the perfect touch of gamey earthiness. Decant for an hour and enjoy with your favorite cut of steak!

    This is my style of Bordeaux. The Coufran has an amazing, generous nose of cedar and brambly, plummy fruit, texture that can only be won with patience and a very long finish. It doesn't have any trace of heaviness, and is very much in the medium bodied style that goes so very well with food. This estate has the highest ratio of Merlot planted that I know of on the left bank of the river at 85%. The remaining 15% is Cabernet Sauvignon. The vine age averages 40 years, giving this wine its authority and concentration of flavors, but not at the expense of ease of drinkability. I will be buying a case of this one for sure!
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2034
