Traced back to 1643, Chateau Coutet is one of Bordeaux's oldest wine producing estates. In original owner, Charles Le Guerrin, was lord Coutet. In 1977, the estate was sold to Marcel Baly, who immediately undertook extensive renovations.It involved restoring and re-planting the 95 acres of walled vineyards, improving all the work process, rebuilding the cellars and the winery, and finally the restoration of the Chateau itself.

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.
