Chateau Coutet Sauternes-Barsac

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2009 Vintage) says
Regular visits to Australia by Chateau Coutet’s delightful proprietor Aline Baly provide opportunities to compare many vintages of one of Sauterne’s great sweet wines. She recently pulled 2002, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010 out of her bag, and this was my pick. A vintage of great definition, projecting wonderful freshness of pristine peach, apricot, fig and paw par fruit. Honeyed sweetness is intricately integrated with bright acidity, contrasting powerful concentration with elegant freshness. It’s drinking beautifully right away, and will appreciate time to build complexity

Tyson Stelzer (2007 Vintage) says
Château Coutet’s Aline Baly characterises the house style by its cut of clean, crisp acidity (‘Coutet’ means ‘knife’). Acidity always defines the finest sweet wines, and in 2007 it has crafted a particularly refined example, bringing consummate freshness and definition to a wine of profound concentration. There is a primary grapey focus here, with all of the fanfare of frangipane and exotic spice, layered with complexity of marmalade, locut, toffee and even pepper.
