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$65. My first pour of the Coutet 2000 presented with a distinct waft of VA, almost detergent like. I questioned my nose, and sought a second opinion of the second bottle. Ah! Much better, a clean fragrant nose this time. Still, this wine has a muted nose with light aromas of tropical fruit and citrus. A simplistic drink, with med+ acidity, it is well weighted with the acidity balanced against the sugars. Ripe stone fruit, citrus and a spoonful of honey. There appeared to be a touch of tannic weight on the finish, perhaps a sign of tired age. Definitely drink up now.
