About This Wine...
“Bright gold. Almonds on the nose. Lots of bright fruit. Massively sweet. Big boned. Super opulent. There’s a savoury dryness to the finish of this. Very clean and bright. Very persistent. Drink 2020 – 2050.”
18+/20 Jancis Robinson 2014
“The Chateau Coutet 2010 was a beauty from barrel with its payload of 154gms of residual sugar and sure enough, after a year in bottle it is one of the most compelling sweet wines in the vintage. It shows immense clarity on the nose, with the oak still a little prominent at the moment, but it will integrate with bottle age. The palate is well-balanced with a fine line of acidity. There is an engaging sense of tension here, real drive and mineralite towards the finish, like a cousin of Doisy-Daene but with a little more bravura. There is a sense of purpose about this 2010 Sauternes, with a persistent finish that keeps you coming back for more. Bravo! Drink now-2030+.”
