Coutet is considered to be one of the leading properties in Sauternes and Barsac displaying fresh acidity representative of Barsac and the floral character more attributed to Sauternes.
Neal Martin: “This has a relatively simple but crisp nose with dried honey, apricot, quince and a touch of almond. The palate is well balanced with good acidity and botrytis, pure, quite linear with white peach, pear, a touch of mandarin and citrus acidity cutting through its viscous texture towards the finish. It improves the more it remains in the mouth, the nose seeming to absorb energy, the palate becoming ever more “pixilated”. This is another intellectual Sauternes that should age beautifully.
