JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2022 Château Couhins is incredibly impressive. Based on 54% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Petit Verdot, it has a darker, concentrated, focused style that's going to benefit from bottle age. Giving up lots of both red and black fruits, as well as some floral and violet hints, it has good mid-palate depth, ripe tannins, and a great finish."
JAMES SUCKLING: "This is textured and polished with medium body and stony minerality. Fine tannins and a mineral finish. A little lean at the end."
THE WINE ADVOCATE: "A blend of 54% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Couhins reveals aromas of cassis, lilac, iris, spring flowers and elegant hints of spices, typical of this cooler limestone terroir. It's medium to full-bodied on the palate, ample and fleshy, with velvety tannins and a vibrant core of fruit, concluding with a long, fruity finish. This is an impressive effort from an estate to watch."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Spicy tobacco leaves, black currants, flowers, chocolate, and cherries show in the nose. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, bright, fresh and spicy, with chewy tannins and a slight touch of cocoa in the finish. The wine blends 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. 14.5 ABV. 2022 marks the first vintage as being certified as 100% Organic. Drink from 2025-2037."
