This superb estate covers 95 acres planted with 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% of the often overlooked Muscadelle. Soils are red-toned clay along with parcels of gravel over limestone. Picking is done, often over several weeks, by successive passes or tris, which are essential to obtain berries with the right degree of noble rot. After multiple pressings in a vertical basket press and a cold settling to remove the lees or deposits, the juice is fermented in all-new barrels. Aging occurs over 18 months. The 2003 Coutet is an outstanding example of Barsac which offers a multidimensional profile and supreme elegance.

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.
