Cuisine et Vin de France – Sauternes dernier lieu à la mode

7 November 2018

L’un des deux porte-drapeaux du vignoble de Barsac, Coutet signe des liquoreux dotés de merveilleuses liqueurs que le temps patine avec brio. La largeur de ce 2015 solaire n’entache en rien la définition particulièrement délicate du vin qui prouve combien Barsac s’associe à la finesse sur les fruits à chair blanche avec une énergie particulière […]

Follow my Gut – Bordeaux Wines Brought their Pop Up Event to West Hollywood and Here’s How it Looked

24 October 2018

Livets Goda – Bordeaux en Primeur 2017

18 October 2018

Château Coutet 2017: 95-96/100 Det är svärare att producera ett sött vin, kräver större arbetsinsatser och mängden man fär ut är mindre per hektar. 2017 var utbytet extremt litet för Coutet men det som producerats är inget annat än enastäende bra. Saffran, ingefära, kryddighet och honug samsas med gul frukt, apelsinnyanser och en rikedom som […]

The Wall Street Journal – The Best Bargain in French Wines

27 August 2018

American wine lovers are, for the most part, in the dark about Sauternes, the great sweet white of Bordeaux. And that’s too bad, because it tends to be one of the finest values around OVER THE YEARS, readers have asked why I haven’t written more about sweet wines.
