Château Coutet:

The fine wines from Chateau Coutet are concentrated and sweet with high levels of acidity to balance out the sweetness. While the wines are delicious when young, the true nature of an excellent Barsac like Chateau Coutet is only shown when the wines have many years of bottle age. These wines gain complexity and a lushness after a good vintage is stored for a decade or so. Coutet is especially known for the complex aromas it develops. It is important that storage conditions be proper for the life of the wine. Chateau Coutet is known for producing a very elegant and stylish dessert wine. It is rich and full bodied and has the aromas and flavors of stone fruits like peaches when young. The flavors of the young wine develop into a complex fabric of vanilla, honey and cinnamon after years of age. Recent vintages have shown very strong results. Read less

AUD$69. This wine is in stark contrast to the 2005 at this time. Now within its peak drinking window, this fully mature Coutet showed softer floral scents with notes of apricot, mango and Japanese cherry tea. Delicious plump flavours of mango, apricot, candied pineapple and ginger. It still maintains some freshness attributable to moderate acidity. Very good length on the finish. Drink now – 2018.

Pale yellow. Subtle aromas of peach pineapple orange peel and honey. Very rich concentrated and fleshy; bright acidity gives the fruit salad flavors lovely inner-mouth lift and perfume. Quite suave but also powerful. Finishes rich sweetly oaky and long. I underrated this wine a year ago from barrel. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 98 Coutet has a slightly lighter colour than the 01. It has a typical Barsac bouquet that is fresh and well defined with aromas of pear dried apricot mango and a faint adhesive aroma that is actually quite attractive. The palate is medium-bodied with an attractive viscous entry notes of spice ginger a touch of lemon curd dried lemon and Seville orange marmalade. It shows a little more harmony than the 01 at this stage very good length. Excellent. Drink now-2025+ Tasted April 2010.
