– 2022 is the finest vintage I have ever tasted En Primeur

Château Coutet 2022: 18.5/20

95% Semillon, 4% Sauvignon Blanc/Muscadelle. This is a fabulous wine with sensational delicacy and complexity, and the acid line is thrilling. The back end of this wine ends up dry and pert, and given the depth of fruit on the mid-palate and the haunting beauty on the nose, this is a great 2022, and it will roll on for decades, gradually blossoming as it goes.
