Château Coutet 2018 : 18/20


The nose is fruity and offers freshness as well as intensity/richness. It reveals notes of quince, lemon and small notes zests, kumquat associated with touches of fresh peach, peach flower as well as discreet hits of massepain, apple, verbena and spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a beautiful juiciness, a beautiful minerality, a beautiful fleshy/juicy fruit, gourmandize as well as a mineral/acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh/ripe lemon, juicy peach and small notes of juicy mandarine associated with fine touches of pineaplle, fine hints of fresh quenette, crushed mirable, bee wax, vanilla as well as very discreet hints of spices. Good length. There is a hint of bitterness on the finish.
