2009 Château COUTET, 1er Cru Classé. Sauternes-Barsac, Bordeaux
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Grape Variety: 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Muscadelle.
Press Reviews: 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2009 Coutet has a very intense nose of apricot, papaya, honeysuckle and orange cordial that is very well defined. Interestingly I write the same comment as my appraisal out of barrel in that I would prefer just a little more vigor. However that is a minor quibble. The palate is very well- balanced with a rounded, caressing entry. There is certainly tremendous weight in the mouth and abundant botrytis, especially upon the unctuous finish. This has great potential -- a fantastic wine from one of the finest Barsac estates. Drink now-2035+." Neal Martin, 2013.
"Tasted blind. Deep gold. Very big and massive and yet fresh, with enormous weight but tension too. Almost hot! Dense." - 18/20 Jancis Robinson, tasting in March 2019.
