Reviews for 2001 Coutet Sauternes Blend

WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, September 2004
Lots of lemon and maple syrup on the nose with dried apricots. Full-bodied with a very sweet and rich palate of candied lemon and orange rinds and a long finish. Beautifully sticky...

Subdued but pure aromas of mirabelle peach pear and pineapple; hints at a roasted botrytis ripeness. Then fat and rich in the mouth with a captivating flavor of roasted peach.

Then fat and rich in the mouth with a captivating flavor of roasted peach. Impressively broad and oily but not yet filled in. Very suave somewhat youthfully understated Barsac and not at all overly honeyed today or dominated by its oak component...

The first had a distinct, rather pungent aniseed element on the nose and a slight bitterness on the palate. Calling for a second example, this is much more representative. Here is a typical Coutet nose that is just beginning to find its groove: barley sugar and quince scents typifying Barsac, augmented by Seville orange and lime. The palate is viscous and extremely well focused with fine mineralité and tension. It feels quite youthful and linear vis-à-vis its peers and concludes with a tangy, marmalade-lavished finish. This is ageing nicely though at the same time, I would suggest that the Baly family have surpassed this with subsequent vintages. - Neal Martin

A little smoky and indistinct on the nose – smudgy. Rose-petal scents. Very heavy and sweet. Super rich. Thick and dense. BIG!!!!!! 17.5/20 GV
