"Couchiroy"or "Couche Roi" in Gascon. According to legend, one stormy evening,King Henri IV, returning from the Battle of Coutras, stopped here for a rest. Hewill surely have appreciated this fresh, easy-to-drink wine and enjoyed itsastonishing tropical fruit aromas. Atrue wine fit for a king!
The wine is very fruity on the palate, which is even more complex than the bouquet, leaving a tremendously attractive impression of fruit salad (pear, peach, and citrus). The balance is perfect because the vivaciousness and precision lead into a long aftertaste. This makes a wonderful wine to drink with panfried Norway lobsters and citrus fruit or, more unusually, crab-stuffed sea urchins.
