About Chateau Coufran:
In the XVIII and XIXth century, Chateau Coufran belonged to the Comte de Verthamon, under whose aegis production increased from 65 tonneaux in 1850 to 150 tonneaux in 1868. At this time, Verthamon sold the property to the Celevier family, in whose hands it remained untill ot was bought by Loius Miailhe in 1924. Today, Jean Maiilhe and his two children own Coufran and neighbor Verdignan. When Louis Miailhe bought Coufran, he planted 100% Merlot grapes, which was quite a revolutionary step in the predomonantly Cabernet Sauvignonm planted Medoc.
