The 2010 Chateau Coutet has 154-gms/litre residual sugar, one of the highest in Sauternes/Barsac. It is endowed with a delightful bouquet of freshly sliced mango, Tropicana and a touch of honey, with good definition and minerality. The palate is medium-bodied with very impressive balance and poise, and is slightly viscous in the mouth, with almond, lemon curd and a touch of orange peel. The finish is composed and long. The 2010 Coutet is very impressive for the vintage, although I suggest not quite reaching the stellar heights of the magnificent 2009. -Neal Martin

Really ripe and fleshy, offering delicious glazed peach, apricot and honey notes, with lots of orange blossom and fig and a very rich finish. Starting to take shape now too. Impressive. -J.M.

75% semillon, 23% sauvignon blanc, 2% muscadelle.100% new oak. Planted to clay on limestone subsoil.

Planted to clay on limestone subsoil. A deep, tightly packed nose boasts loads of exotic fruit, coconut and spicy botrytis, backed with candied lemon peel. The entry is very creamy and juicy, underscored by bright citrus tones, toasted almond, orange marmalade and yellow stone fruit. Acids lift the entire wine, keeping it elegant and fresh, and carrying through a long, delectable finish. This will age effortlessly. Enjoy through 2040.

Smudgy and interesting, already, on the nose. Lots of richness and smoothness. Really. This approaches the idea of a classic vintage with its density and concentration. Long. Very fine. RS 156 g/l, TA 4.2. 18 out of 20
