Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Domain and appellation
Château Couhins ("confines" in Old Gascon) takes its name from its geographical location on the borders of the former Ornon County, along the Eau Blanche stream. Until the 17th century, the Couhins and Carbonnieux castles formed only one domain. In1968, the Couhins vineyard was almost abandoned. Out of the dozens of hectares that made it up a few decades ago, there were scarcely more than 2 hectares of vines for which André Lurton would ensure vinification until 1979. During the years which follow, INRA will endeavor to restructure the vineyard on the basis of a new parcel definition and then proceed with the construction of a winery which will see the light of day in 1981
