Press review

Jean-Marc Quarin : 16,25 - 16,5

Sustained yellow color. The nose is of average intensity and rather marked by spices than fruit. Very nice melting smoothness on entry. The wine develops very, very fruity, aromatic with a fine and melting touch on the palate. The finish is of average length, rich in sugar, yet roasted and ethereal.

Parker # 188 (4/1/2010) : 94 Maturity: -2030

This has a relatively simple but crisp nose with dried honey, apricot, quince and a touch of almond. The palate is well balanced with good acidity and botrytis, pure, quite linear with white peach, pear, a touch of mandarin and citrus acidity cutting through its viscous texture towards the finish. It improves the more it remains in the mouth, the nose seeming to absorb energy, the palate becoming ever more “pixilated”. This is another intellectual Sauternes that should age beautifully.

The property in brief

1er Cru Classé in 1855. Coutet is one of the widest and oldest estates in Sauternes. It was built at the end of the 13th Century, time from which remains a square tower. The estate was taken over in 1977 by Marcel Baly and his sons, Philippe and Dominique. In great years, they also produce "Cuvée Madame", whose length and fruit complexity are almost unequalled.
