Lou Coucardié Red 2015

Here we’re exploring new territories with the hope of finding the most intimate expression of our terroir. The 2015 vintage started off with beautiful weather, and during the harvest we had to dodge our share of storms. The warm August nights gave berries of wonderful phenological ripeness, but a tad lacking in color. The wines are ample, with ripe fruit and a hedonistic balance.

Appearance
Nose

Powerful and extremely complex, it displays a wide array of aromas such as dark berries, spices, eucalyptus and vanilla welded in great harmony.

Taste

Rich and velvety, without being heavy, this wine pulls its finish in an aerial display of fresh fruits and ripe tannins.
