Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – The Surprisingly Successful 2011 Red and White Bordeaux

30 avril 2012

2011 Coutet 94-96 To be honest, I expected the 2011 Coutet to come rushing out of the blocks like Doisy-Daene; however it is not playing that game.

Château Coutet Barsac, 2011 Score: 95–98 This is really packed, with heather, golden raisin, dried pineapple, fresh white peach, quince and honey notes all woven beautifully together. The long, pure, singing finish has loads in reserve. James Molesworth
