Reviews for 2005 Coutet Sauternes Blend

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, June 2008
Surprisingly dry this has richness rather than sweetness and intense powerful botrytis. The honey is intensely perfumed along with baked apples and spice. Certainly a long-aging wine.

The 2005 Château Coutet has a slightly muffled bouquet at the moment: honeysuckle, dried quince and a dab of kerosene in the background. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with plenty of botrytized fruit, tensile and linear in the mouth with fine mineralité, though missing the sheer ambition and dimension of the Climens ’05. Nonetheless, one can appreciate the tensile nature of this Barsac that should give 20 to 30 years of pleasure. - Neal Martin

The palate has a good level of botrytis quite minerally nice tension with dried apricot and spicy quince flavours coming through on the linear finish. Time should mellow this out. Excellent. Drink 2012-2025.

Pineapple and mango surrounded by sweet puffy toasted marshmallow. Yellow apple and pineapple fruits on the palate with a nice touch of botrytis. Very thick in the mouth with medium acidity and dried apricots on the finish.

Sweet thick and powerful but with its fat fruit flavors cut by strong acidity. At once densely packed and vibrant finishing with superb lingering sweetness and a mineral element. This needs patience and should evolve slowly.

Spice dried pineapple honey and light apricot aromas like freshly crushed grapes. Full-bodied and very sweet with masses of crushed fruit character and a long finish. Best after 2010. 4165 cases made. -JS
