Opalie de Château Coutet 2018 : 17/20   Un des secs les plus impressionnants du millésime, quantité infime mais exemplaire de race, de finesse et de fraîcheur.   Michel Bettane

Matthew Jukes – Bordeaux The Report 2018 En Primeur

20 April 2019

Château Coutet 2018: 17,5+/20   Classy ans rather well-balanced, albeit from an introverted point of view, this is a firm and intense Coutet and I like the length and also the intensity of the flavor here.   Matthew Jukes

Decanter – En Primeurs 2018

19 April 2019

Château Coutet 2018: 94/100   There is a clear quality here, with good persitency and some lovely minerality, if relatively little acidity. Kt has a strong golden colour, suggesting concentration, followed bu luscious fruit flavours through the palate of apricot, peach, nectarine and cantaloupe melon, and bitter herbs on the finish. 50% new oak was […]

Château Coutet 2018 : 91-92/100   Pleasant center palate to this young Barsac. Medium-bodied and very sweet, but lacks a bit of botrytis for me.   James Suckling

Top Dessert Wines     Château Coutet 2018: 95-97/100   This wine’s ripeness is intense, just hinting at an impressive future. The dry core of botrytis balances the honey and the spice, along with fresh lemon curd. This is likely to be a very fine wine.     Roger Voss

29 March 2019

Opalie de Château Coutet 2018 : 91-94/100   A showy, ripe style, with tangerine, peach and yellow apple notes, set on a creamy frame, revealing flashes of pineapple and verbena. Should be a lot of fun.   James Molesworth

Robert Parker – France, Bordeaux, Sauternes, 2016 Sauternes spotlight

29 March 2019

Château Coutet 2016: 95/100   With coaxing, the pale lemon colored 2016 Coutet slowly unfurls to give a myriad of preserved lemons, pineapple pastry, almond croissant, fresh ginger and lime blossoms scents with nuances of chalk dust, white pepper, star anise and cedar. Rich, seductive and yet exquisitely balanced, the satiny-textured palate has layer upon […]
