Vinous – Finally: Bordeaux 2015 in Bottle

9 July 2019

Château Coutet 2015 : 95/100


The 2015 Coutet is a little reduced on the nose and lacks the flair of some of its peers. Pinched at the moment – maybe going through a sulky phase? The palate is well balanced and very harmonious, viscous in texture with perfectly matched acidity and fine delineation and precision toward the finish. Once the bouquet awakens this should be a seriously fine Barsac/Sauternes. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
