Château Coutet

05-56-27-15-46 BARSAC, 33720
France

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. – Description from mriskic

  • Château Coutet Saint Émilion Premier Cru 1998

    Snoothrank:

    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 acidi... Read More

  • Château Coutet Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Barsac 2000

    Snoothrank:

    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... Read More

  • Chateau Coutet Barsac Chateau Coutet Barsac Semillon 2005

    Snoothrank:

    AUD$74. This is a brilliant lush young wine that is just hitting its strides. Ive had several gos at this vintage, and it has been interesting to try and recall how it has evolved in bottle. Pale sunflower oil-like yellow colour. Intense aromas of ripe tropical fruit, nectarine, honey and kumquats. Lovely acidity that allows the sweet sugars to ... Read More
