    2006 1er Cru Classe from Barsac

    The Chateau Coutet vineyard stretches over 38.5 hectares of enclosed vines. The estate is located on an exceptional terroir. This 2006 is a blend of 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle.

    The beautiful golden coloured wine reveals a quite rich nose that opens up on a fine, subtle aromatic palette and gives off mild spices, honey, vanilla, lovely grilled or even cocoa-flavoured notes. The whole is underlined by a hint of small candid fruits and citrus zests. On the palate, the 2006 Chateau Coutet emphasises finesse over strength. The wine is an elegant combination of blended aromatic notes and impression of developing liqueur on a good mineral freshness, specific to the Barsac wines. The well-balanced wine offers finesse and is aromatically pleasant.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted at the Sauternes 2006 ten-year on horizontal in Bordeaux. The 2006 Coutet has plenty of quince and marmalade scents on the nose, a subtle nuttiness underneath, perhaps a touch of passion fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with harmonious citrus-fresh peach and quince notes. This is very harmonious and focused, driven by a killer line of acidity, and the finish exudes tension and precision. This is a great Barsac from the Coutet team and it will deliver pleasure for many years yet. Tasted April 2016.
