This superb estate covers 95 acres planted with 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% of the often overlooked Muscadelle. Soils are red-toned clay along with parcels of gravel over limestone. Picking is done, often over several weeks, by successive passes or tris, which are essential to obtain berries with the right degree of noble rot. After multiple pressings in a vertical basket press and a cold settling to remove the lees or deposits, the juice is fermented in all-new barrels. Aging occurs over 18 months. The 2003 Coutet is an outstanding example of Barsac which offers a multidimensional profile and supreme elegance. Robert Parker 93.

Honey, apple tart and lemon rind. Full-bodied, medium-sweet and very spicy with intense flavors of mace, apple and honey. Long finish. Thick and powerful. Best after 2010. 4,165 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Coutet 1500ml

Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. This bottle of Coutet 03 was showing slight reduction on the geranium-scented nose although it seems to sort that out and offer lanolin and melted wax aromas with time. The palate is viscous and quite spicy on the entry dried honey marjoram white pepper and quince whilst the finish offers an attractive oxidative note. Coutets limestone soils mean it thrives on acidity and race but in 2003 I think the heat of the summer just knocked this great Barsac sideways. Drink now-2018. Tasted April 2013. - Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Bright yellow-gold. Sexy aromas of orange liqueur and spices. Sweet round and pure with a lush texture verging on unctuous. And yet this is wonderfully aromatic and light on its feet. Very ripe and very complex in the mouth with harmonious acids framing the flavors of orange oil peach and spicy oak. Finishes very long ripe and seamless with lingering notes of oaky vanilla and spice. This has been a knockout since the outset. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
