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

5 October 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 Barsac.
