The Wine Independant – Bordeaux Primeurs 2021
4 July 2022
Château Coutet 2021: 93-95+
Pale to medium lemon-yellow in color, the 2021 Coutet has a wonderfully fragrant nose of lime blossoms, honeycomb, and marzipan over a core of lemon tart, juicy peaches, and spiced pears. The palate shimmers with energy and tension, delivering tightly packed stone fruit and spicy layers with a very long, opulent finish. Residual sugar around 130 g/l.
Drinking Window: 2026 – 2046
