Domaine Coulous 'Les Vignes de Coulous' is surely one of the best value wines coming out of Bordeaux today. We were stunned at how good this is.
Whereas many Bordeaux wines feel very autumnal or wintery, this is a great red for all year round. It is very approachable, fun, charming even. And that is not something you can say about a lot of wines from Bordeaux.
It shows lovely ripe bramble and blackcurrant fruit along with hints of violet and liquorice. The mouthfeel is soft, plush and round with very fine tannin.
Grape varieties: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc
