(33) Gironde

The Château Coufran vineyard is located north of Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne, a neighbouring commune of Saint-Estèphe in the canton of Pauillac. It stretches over a hill whose top reaches an altitude of 21 metres. From a single block of 76 hectares, it is planted on soils composed mainly of beautiful gravel and clay.
The vines are located in the HAUT-MEDOC appellation and the village benefits greatly from the influence of the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean.

Our story

The dovecot dates back to the time of the old regime and already in the archives of Abbé Baurein dating from the 18th century, it was mentioned the noble house of "Cousran". Many families have followed one another but the most famous is certainly that of the Baron de Brane, nicknamed the "Napoleon of the vines" who will impose Cabernet en Médoc as the main grape variety. the acquisition by Louis Miailhe in 1924 is an important step for this vintage. Louis Miailhe then decided on the final spelling of "Coufran".
He began a major restructuring of the vineyard to plant mainly Merlot Noir, a rounder and more charming grape variety, which was highly popular at the time.

Other little stories

The great wine of Château COUFRAN is atypical for the Médoc; its originality comes from the blend... In 1924 Château Coufran was a very Cabernet Sauvignon wine, almost unsaleable during the great crises. Louis Miailhe then decided to replant everything with Merlot. This originality has been preserved; the blend of the latest vintages is still around 85% Merlot. The journalist who once described Coufran as "Pomerol du Médoc" may have given the best definition.
