Chateau Coutet 2000

 A case of 12 Bottles (750ML)

2000 Barsac 1er Cru Classe

Chateau Coutet deeply rooted vines express fresh, rich, and strong character of the terroir. The 2000 vintage is 90% Semillon, 9% Sauvignon Blanc, and 1% Muscadelle produced in Barsac appellation.

This 1er Cru Classe displays a solid gold colour with old gold shades. The vintage is more focused on finesse than concentration. Pleasant aromas, discreet yet very elegant, combine beeswax and gingerbread with more subtle notes of candied fruits, peach liquor, and dry fruit (hazelnut). The palate reveals supple and soft offering evolving into appealing iodized mineral notes and smother flavours: mild spices, vanilla, and Mirabelle plum compote. The luscious finish carries medium length, typical of contrasted growing season all the while boasting originality.
