      Winemaker Notes

      The color is light and pale (straw). The nose presents nice notes of bitter orange, grapefruit, fresh ginger and white peach. At aeration, come floral touches of jasmine and acacia. The attack is supple, fresh and lively. The whole presents a beautiful density with a velvety and unctuous touch, all in finesse. The wine is characterized by a pleasant vivacity and a remarkable balance. The freshness lasts along the length, accompanied by aromas of orange and sweet spices on the finish.

      Blend: 75% Sémillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Muscadelle

      Critical Acclaim

      RP 95
      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Coutet has super intense, well-delineated notions of warm pineapple, green guava and baked pineapple with hints of mandarin peel, gingerbread, orange blossoms and lime leaves. The palate is alive with energetic tropical fruit and exotic spice notes with a lovely satiny texture and fantastic freshness, finishing with epic length.
      Barrel Sample: 93-95

      Wine Enthusiast

      This wine is beautifully textured. The orange-peel and candied fruitiness are balanced by a dry core of botrytis that gives the wine weight while keeping a light touch. It has all the tight freshness and minerality typical of this great estate. Drink from 2026. Cellar Selection

      D 94
      Decanter

      Deep in colour, with strong peach and apricot pit flavours, and welcome touches of almond bitterness on the finish that help things to lift off and take flight, because overall things are extremely concentrated here. 50% new oak was used. Drinking Window 2021 - 2034

      WS 91
      Wine Spectator
      Rather bold, with lots of ginger and graham cracker details out front, followed by warm glazed peach and pineapple flavors. A flash of green tea in the background adds a tantalizing note. Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle.
      JS 91
      James Suckling

      A delicate, refined Barsac with dried lemon, apricot and a medium-sweet palate. Medium body. Bright finish. Lighter style of Coutet. Drink now.

      Chateau Coutet, France
      Chateau Coutet  Winery Image
      An English fortress built in the 13th Century, this citadel with its square tower, a design typical of the era’s military constructions, became a wine producing estate in 1643. Previously owned by the Lur-Saluces family, the property was home to Chateau d’Yquem’s horse stables, transformed in the late 19th Century into a 110-meter long cellar (the longest in the appellation). A second round tower in the property’s northern plot, a Chateau Coutet landmark, was built originally to breed pigeons and peacocks for the region’s Gascon lords. Vertical wine presses from the 1920s, a 14th Century chapel and a Bordeaux cobblestone courtyard are a testament to the estate’s rich architectural and regional history.

      Thomas Jefferson celebrated Chateau Coutet as the best Sauternes from Barsac during his ambassadorship to France. In 1855, recognized for its continued excellence, the estate was classified as a first growth. Today, Chateau Coutet stays true to its tradition of distinction and quality by producing the finest Barsac year after year. With an average age of 35 years, the vines of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle have developed a network of deep roots to extract elements from the limestone and clay-based terroir, giving the grapes freshness, richness and strength. For this reason, the wine carries the name "Coutet," derived from the Gascon's word for knife, to signify the fresh, lively and crisp palate taht is the estate's signature style.
