“The Pomerol of Médoc“


Château Coufran has been in the Miailhe family since 1924. The wine is atypical for the Médoc region by its original blend. Coufran is a member of the Union des Grands Crus and the Académie des Vins de Bordeaux, and is a wine not to be missed.

“The Pomerol of Médoc”

In 1924, Château Coufran was a Cabernet Sauvignon-driven wine and almost impossible to sell during the major crises. Louis Miailhe decided to replant the vineyard with Merlot. This original idea has endured. The blend of the most recent vintages is still made up of around 85% Merlot. The journalist who once called Coufran the “Pomerol of Médoc” perhaps gave the best definition.
