Description

Château Coutet, 1er Cru Classe, Sauternes-Barsac, Barsac, Bordeaux, 2009

Grapes: A blend of 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon and 2% Muscadelle, clay/limestone soils, manual harvest, barrel fermented, aged 18 months in new French oak 

Supremely elegant Barsac with fine balance of sugar and acidity. Really fine and fresh dessert wine with fantastic, sweet honeyed fruit and a long, clean finish.

Please Note: This wine may exhibit tartrate crystals or “wine diamonds”. These are naturally occurring substances, a result of the wine not been overly manipulated in the production method, and do not affect the aroma, taste, or quality of the wine. When it comes to serving either decant the wine or filter it through a muslin cloth.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"This is the best example of a young Chateau Coutet I have ever tasted. Intense notes of honey drenched pineapple, orange, apricot, nectarine, nuts and minerality focus your attention. Rich, pure, sweet, powerful and refined, there is the perfect amount of lift and balance to keep you interested in tasting the wine. The assemblage this vintage was made from 75% Semillon , 23% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle. Bravo Aline!"

96/100 points, Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider, January 2012 

"Pale to medium gold colored, the 2009 Coutet leaps from the glass with warm apple pie, dried mango, fresh straw, lemongrass, ginger and crème caramel notes. The rich, concentrated, unctuous flavors are lifted by amazing freshness, finishing epically long, layered and with a tantalizing nuttiness." Drink 2019 - 2037

96/100 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, WINE ADVOCATE, March 2019

The chateau recommends a sweet pairing of white chocolate and roasted apricot fool, or even a savoury match of Tamarind-glazed turkey, Sauternes chestnuts and sweet potato chips alongside a side dish of creamed parsnip and beetroot with roasted lemon and oregano.
