31 March 2021

Château Coutet : 16-16,5/20 Très fermé lors de la dégustation en primeur (avril 2018), le vin se révèle peu à peu. Nez confit, pêche jaune, bouche riche en saveurs, intense, long, plein, fruits confits. Très persistant. Jacques Dupont

Vinous – The Future’s Definitely Not What It Was: Bordeaux 2018

9 March 2021

Château Coutet 2018: 94/100 The 2018 Coutet has a very intense bouquet with marmalade, clementines, mango and light apple blossom scents, all delivered with exceptional precision and delineation. The palate is vibrant and tensile on the opening thanks to a killer line of acidity that slices through the viscous fruit. There is so much tangible […]

Opalie de Château Coutet 2018: 93/100 This has an exotic display of fresh pineapple, mandarin orange, yellow apple, lemon peel and star fruit flavors that are rich in feel yet precise and racy as they move through a finish gilded with honeysuckle and orange blossom notes.

24 January 2021

Opalie 2018: 92/100 Nice density on the palate even if the nose seems a bit closed in. This has smooth nature, with ripe fruit. I like a hint of tropical but there is elegance even. Smooth. Opalie de Coutet of Château Coutet. Panos Kakaviatos

Decanter – Top Sauternes & Barsac 2018 wines: Re-tasted in the bottle

15 January 2021

Château Coutet 2018: 94/100Deep in colour, with strong peach and apricot pit flavours, and welcome touches of almond bitterness on the finish that help things to lift off and take flight, because overall things are extremely concentrated here. 50% new oak was used. A yield of just 3hl/ha. Tasted twice. Drinking Window 2021 – 2034 […]

En Magnum : La rive gauche toujours la référence

28 December 2020

Château Coutet : ****   Coutet (qui se prononce « Coutette ») est l’autre grand terroir de Barsac, un rien (deux ou trois mètres) plus bas que Climens, avec plus de proportion de fer dans le sol calcaire. L’alsacien Philippe Baly l’administre avec une discipline jamais dénuée d’humour et maintient la propriété d’une petite quarantaine d’hectares […]
