Château Coutet Barsac 1er Cru Classé 2010

99.00

A beautiful golden color, the wine’s extremely fine nose brings in lovely hints of very ripe exotic and citrus fruits as well as vanilla, with a tinge of subtle and elegant floral aromas.

On the palate, the wine is fleshy, round and dulcet with a perfect balance between power, freshness and finesse, enhanced by the persistent aromatic zests of citrus, mingled with notes of preserved apricot.

The finish is dense and rich, yet gives an impression of ‘crispness’ with the presence of fresh fruits. It is the expression of a very promising but young vintage, with the power and the complexity that are expected of a harvest with excellent climatic conditions.

Beautiful color. Aromas of marmalade and lime but also dried fruits on the nose. Rich and powerful palate, concentrated. Very peppery finish.

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+.”

95/100 Robert Parker 2014
