Château Coutet

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

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

  • Quite the sea change in Bordeaux as prices seem a bit more affordable these days (as opposed to the 2009 bull rush just 5-6 years ago), and it appears they have a vintage that strikes the right balance between cool and warm. Not a too hot or too cold year that is, probably the first one like it since 2008.Eyeing Grand Puy Lacoste at $53/each, Du... Read More

  • There are hundreds of sweet wines but if we had a survey to name just one, bet your bottom dollar that Sauternes would be top of the list. This famous French sweetie is served at posh dinner parties and top restaurants around the world, usually in those silly little ‘thimble’ glasses but hey, let’s talk about the wine itself for a minute. The Sa... Read More

  • Château Coutet Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Barsac 1998


    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

  • Coutet Saint Emilion Gc Btls. Original Wooden Case 2000


    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

  • Château Coutet Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Barsac 2005


    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
