A very balanced and fresh wine from Barsac

A First Classified Growth of 1855 in the Barsac appellation, Château Coutet is a must-have for those passionate about the great wines of Bordeaux. Difficult weather at the beginning of the year and especially in April, punctuated by a devastating frost, tested the abilities of this great property. Thanks to the vineyard team, who stayed up for several nights to guard the fires protecting the vines from frost, about 50% of the vineyard was saved. The meticulous work and mild weather of the months that followed made it possible to create a very beautiful wine indeed.

The Château Coutet 2017 is extremely pleasant. The aromatic complexity on the nose is dominated by citrus (lemon in particular) and complemented by floral notes, confirmed on the palate as both lively and generous, achieving the signature balance of great Barsac wines. This wine is smooth on the palate and stays remarkably fresh. The finish of this Château Coutet 2017 is superb, with a very significant aromatic persistence.

Parker : 95 / 100

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 Coutet has a super intense nose of ripe apricots, honey-coated nuts, warm pineapple and mango with touches of nutmeg and orange blossoms. Rich, sweet and unctuous, it has wonderful intensity and depth, finishing with fantastic length.
