Château Couhins-Lurton, Graves Cru Classé
Decanter average score: 17.75/20pts (92/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores: Stephen Brook 18 Andy Howard MW 17.75 Steven Spurrier 17.5
Elegant nose of white flowers, ripe apricot and a hint of jasmine. Good ripeness on the palate, which has a spicy edge. Fine, piercing acidity supports and cuts the ripe fruit and gives excellent length.
