2005 Barsac 1er Cru Classe

Chateau Coutet 35-hectares vineyard grows vines averaging 40 years old using reasoned agriculture. The 2005 Chateau Coutet is 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle.

The wine shows a gorgeous copper-tinted golden hue. The nose opens with generous and complex aromas combining candied apricot, orange zest, spices, and honey. Light, subtle elegant wood notes and toasted hints complement the bouquet.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Coutet has a slightly muffled bouquet at the moment: honeysuckle, dried quince and a dab of kerosene in the background. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with plenty of botrytized fruit, tensile and linear in the mouth with fine mineralité, though missing the sheer ambition and dimension of the Climens '05. Nonetheless, one can appreciate the tensile nature of this Barsac that should give 20 to 30 years of pleasure.
