Château Coutet Description

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.

Wine Spectator: 95 Points

Offers a bright inner core of honeysuckle, pineapple, star fruit and white peach flavors, coated for now with heather honey, marzipan and mango notes. Fresh and racy through the finish, this is an elegant beauty, showing terrific cut and precision. Best from 2015 through 2030.

Wine Enthusiast: 94 Points

This is a very spicy wine with weight, great depth of flavor and concentration. Fine acidity cuts through the core, balancing sweetness and adding freshness to flavors of wild thyme-honey and orange marmalade. Drink the wine from 2017. Cellar Selection

James Suckling: 94 Points

A sweet wine with honey and sliced apple character with lemon. Full body, medium sweet and a bright finish. It's layered and fascinating. So much spicy, botrytis and dried mushroom powder. Turns creamy. Drink or hold.

Wine Advocate: 91 Points

Medium lemon-gold colored, the 2010 Coutet is relatively evolved, revealing honey nut, ginger ale and baked peaches scents with touches of straw, fresh figs, quince paste and nutmeg. The palate is considerably more mature than when I last reviewed this wine a couple of years age, so I suspect this bottle may have been slightly oxidized, nonetheless it offers loads of nutty nuances accenting the dried fruits, finishing deliciously spicy.
