Château Coutet 2019: Il ne faut pas faire l’impasse sur les liquoreux de 2019, ils sont magnifiques. Comme ce premier cru classé de Barsac, qui allie si bien fraîcheur et fruité éclatant avec ses notes de fruist exotiques. déjà délicieux, il le sera encore dans vingt-cinq ans sur des nuances plus confites. Gérard Muteaud

The World of Fine Wine – 2016 Bordeaux: Class for another area

4 novembre 2020

Château Coutet 2016: 94/100 There’s rich apricot fruit on the nose, and the oak is well-integrated, giving polish to the aromas. The attack is vivid and bright, leading to a very concentrated palate. There’s an immediacy here, almost an assault on the palate, and the oak is quite prominent, but there’s nothing clumsy about the […]

Decanter – Anson: How to blind taste Bordeaux wines

30 octobre 2020

Château Coutet 2009: 96/100 On clay over limestone soils, relatively cool compared to Sauternes, this has a purity and freshness that is striking and moreish.

Wein Gabriel – Rund Hundertährige Sauternes

30 octobre 2020

Château Coutet 1917 : 19/20 Leuchtendes Gold-Gelb mit kupferrotem Schimmer. Wirkt jünger als sene Altersvorgabe. Viel Dörraprikosen in der Nase, Akazienhonig, die Frucht vermittelt einen tropicalen Schimmer, möglicherweise so in Richtung Mango und Papaya. Im Gaumen gibt er sich als typischer Barsac. Saftig, leicht, balanciert, frisch, fast tänzerisch. Ein zeitloser Jungbrunnen. 19/20 trinken.   René […]

28 octobre 2020

Château Coutet 2018 – 17/20 Deep gold. Highly spiced, smelling of burnished gold and a touch of mushroom. So intense but also notably fresh for this vintage. Ripe, broad and full of oranges and apricots. Julia Harding & Tom Parker

The World of Fine Wine – 2019 Bordeaux: Splendor in a Tragedy-Tinged year

5 octobre 2020

Château Coutet 2019- 95-98/100 A lovely nose already, refined and, typically, mineral-backed; beautifully balanced, freshly defined, concentrated midweight wine; very sweet, silken textured, long, subtle, graceful, lemon-tinged, limestone-scented Sauternes; refined, rich, yet oh-so-subtle, with great length of aftertaste. Wonderfully detailed, racy, effortlessly complete wine with enormous class. A great, long-term, but immediately accessible, Coutet. Fabulous […]
