Description

Château Coutet is one of the leading châteaux in the Barsac sub-district of Sauternes, and has been under the ownership of the Baly family since 1977; a charming sweet Bordeaux that also offers great value-for-money.

Coutet dates back to the 13th century, originally being built as a fort, and it wasn’t until the mid-17th century that it began making wine in earnest. Thomas Jefferson rated Coutet as the finest producer in the Barsac appellation.

CRITIC REVIEWS

CRITIC SCORE:
94/100

Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Coutet has super intense, well-delineated notions of warm pineapple, green guava and baked pineapple with hints of mandarin peel, gingerbread, orange blossoms and lime leaves. The palate is alive with energetic tropical fruit and exotic spice notes with a lovely satiny texture and fantastic freshness, finishing with epic length.
93-95/100 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

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 energy in this Coutet. This comes highly recommended.
94/100 - Neal Martin, Vinous (Tasted March 2021)
