Vinous – Omne Trium Perfectum: Bordeaux 2019s in Bottle

Château Coutet 2019: 95/100

The 2019 Coutet has a very intense bouquet of wild honey, saffron, dried pineapple chunks and a touch of cold, wet stones, all imbued with palpable joie-de-vivre. The taut, fresh palate is underpinned by a silver bead of acidity (always one of this Barsac’s leitmotifs), offering clementine, peach and nectarine toward the persistent finish. A joy.
