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.
