(2021) This 54-year-old white Bordeaux from Graves, and what would now be the Pessac-Léognan appellation, is from the year in which André Lurton became 'tenent-farmer' of this prestigious property, coming to that arrangement on hearing that the then owner was about to grub-up the vineyards. It remained that way until 1992, when having already purchased part of the land, Lurton acquired the château and cellars, completing the creation of Château Couhins-Lurton. The wine pours a deepening yellow colour, but still vivid and fresh. On the nose, some custard and waxiness, like old waxed parcel string, then a very pure and elegant, quite fat and solid lemon fruitiness, but there's something almost green, certainly herby too, giving it an extra strictness and unwavering quality towards a long finish, with the elegant white fruit and lemon acidity carrying it forward.
