Leuchtendes Goldgelb mit grünlichen Reflexen, konzentrierte aromatische Frucht mit Honigaromen und Exotik, auch angenehme Botrytisnoten, im Gaumen attraktive Konzentration mit wenig Säure, lange ausgeglichene Süsse mit zarter Herbe, klassisch.

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

Spice and apricot nose. Pear and apricot palate with great balance and a hint of botrytis. Lightish overall.

Lovely botrytis nose and straw yellow this is an outstanding Sauterne. Absolutely lush in the mouth with balanced acid it lingers for minutes in the finish.

Almost as excellent as the 2003. Theres intense botrytis spice on the nose, with lemon peel and dried pineapple. Full-bodied, superspicy and intense. Extremely racy. A beautiful wine. Best after 2014. -JS Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Coutet 375ml

Pale-medium gold. Racy aromas of pineapple, fresh peach, rose water, parsley and marzipan, with enticing floral lift; lovely fresh botrytis character here. Suave and fine-grained; wonderfully light on its feet for such a smooth, even opulent, wine. A... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Coutet 375ml

Pale-medium gold. Racy aromas of pineapple fresh peach rose water parsley and marzipan with enticing floral lift; lovely fresh botrytis character here. Suave and fine-grained; wonderfully light on its feet for such a smooth even opulent wine. A subtle restrained example with nicely integrated acidity and very good finishing grip. Very Barsac in style: approachable young like almost all of these 2006s but with the balance to gain with bottle aging. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Sustained yellow color. The nose is of average intensity and rather marked by spices than fruit. Very nice melting smoothness on entry. The wine develops very, very fruity, aromatic with a fine and melting touch on the palate. The finish is of average length, rich in sugar, yet roasted and ethereal.
