Robe : Bright gold
Noze : The fresh citrus (lemon and grapefruit) notes show the delicateness and finesse of Couhins-Lurton white 2006. After agitation, the perfectly integrated smoky and oaky notes become apparent but never over-shadow the fruit aromas.
On the palate, there is an impressive density and softness. It is clear that the 2006 is a magnificent vintage. A broad range of aromas (passion fruit, grapefruit, etc) unveil on the palate and provide a long finish. This wine, still very young, will be in perfect harmony after benefiting from aging a couple of years in the bottle.
