Offers fascinating aromas of cooked apple clove and honey that follow through to a full body with superlively acidity and spicy blanched almond and honey character on the palate. Long and powerful showing amazing botrytis character with so much spice and richness yet also freshness. Even better than the superb 2006. Best after 2015.

The Chateau Coutet 2007 has a very intense bouquet with lemon curd and orange blossom mixed with clear honey. There is impressive precision here almost crystalline. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine viscous entry great weight and intensity with racy acidity. There is also much tension cutting through the layers of viscous fruit on the sorbet-like finish. This is a typical Coutet through and through and it should age effortlessly over 20-30 years. Tasted January 2011. -Neal Martin

The aromas are intensely sweet full of orange marmalade and honey. The palate goes more for spice with oranges and brown sugar allied to fresh fruits apricots and lychees. The final flavors are delicious and enticing.

Full medium gold. Pineapple orange toffee nutty oak and a whiff of spun sugar on the enticing nose. Sweet but youthful and tangy with lively acidity and underlying minerality giving an incisive quality to the bright core... Full medium gold. Pineapple orange toffee nutty oak and a whiff of spun sugar on the enticing nose. Sweet but youthful and tangy with lively acidity and underlying minerality giving an incisive quality to the bright core of pineapple and apricot fruit. At once rich and sharply focused finishing with excellent length and verve. This should evolve slowly.

This massively structured yet focused Sauternes shows a pale golden color with absolutely brilliant clarity. Lovely tropical nose complete with guava pineapple and golden raisin. Fat and rich in the mid-palate yet remains... This massively structured yet focused Sauternes shows a pale golden color with absolutely brilliant clarity. Lovely tropical nose complete with guava pineapple and golden raisin. Fat and rich in the mid-palate yet remains subtle and well focused throughout. Lively apricot laden finish. This is delicious stuff.

Label

In its youth, Chateau Coutet displays generous notes of white flowers, citrus fruits, honey and vanilla. Ginger and pineapple are very typical aromas in a young release. Time brings out deeper, warmer notes in which spices combine with exotic nectars and candied fruits, such as gingerbread mingled with marmalade. Age also enhances the harmony of its roasted botrytis character and its distinct aromas to give Chateau Coutet a delicate and unique bouquet that is unsurpassed.

Coutet

An English fortress built in the 13th century, Chateau Coutet became a wine producing estate in 1643. Previously owned by the Lur-Saluces family, it was once home to Chateau d’Yquem’s horse stables, transformed in the 19th century into a 110-meter long cellar, the longest in the appellation.

The estate has 38.5 hectares under vines which is primarily planted with Semillon and smaller amounts of Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. The vines' deep roots extract elements from a limestone and clay-based soil, giving the grapes freshness, richness and strength. For this reason the wine carries the name "Coutet,” derived from the Gascon word for knife, to signify the fresh, lively and crisp palate that is the estate's signature style.

In 1787, former U.S. President Thomas Jefferson, then ambassador to France, celebrated Chateau Coutet as the best Sauternes from Barsac. In 1855, the estate was classified as a First Growth and recognized for its continued excellence. Today, as the oldest and largest Barsac estate, Chateau Coutet stays true to its tradition of distinction and quality. The finest Barsac-Sauternes is produced annually under the direction and management of the Baly family as well as the technical and commercial collaboration of the Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A. company.
