Chateau Coutet 2003 SKU: 1087/03 Bordeaux - Barsac - White

Robert Parker :
Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. This bottle of Coutet '03 was showing slight reduction on the geranium-scented nose, although it seems to sort that out and offer lanolin and melted wax aromas with time. The palate is viscous and quite spicy on the entry - dried honey, marjoram, white pepper and quince, whilst the finish offers an attractive oxidative note. Coutet's limestone soils mean it thrives on acidity and race, but in 2003 I think the heat of the summer just knocked this great Barsac sideways. Drink now-2018. Tasted April 2013.
