Chateau Coutet 2009

Bordeaux - Barsac - White Chateau Coutet Chateau Coutet 2009 1087/09
  • Parker : 95
  • J. Robinson : 17

2009 Barsac 1er Cru Classe

Chateau Coutet name refers to distinctive lively, fresh, tense and very unique style of the wines produced in the Barsac appellation -Coutet means "knife" in the Gascon dialect. The 2009 vintage is 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle produced from exceptional terroir.

The wine displays a solid golden hue. The first nose exudes impressive rich aromas which combine beautifully botrytized notes (citrus, candied exotic fruits, honey) with more delicate, lightly spices hints: subtle and elegant. This complex offering pairs pleasant volume with appealing roundness. The palate offers candied fruits, brandied prunes, Mirabelle plum liquor as well as classic notes from maturation: blended vanilla, caramel, toffee, or even sweet spices and white pepper. The finish is expressive, powerful, warm, and carries beautiful length.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2009 Coutet has a very intense nose of apricot, papaya, honeysuckle and orange cordial that is very well defined. Interestingly I write the same comment as my appraisal out of barrel in that I would prefer just a little more vigor. However that is a minor quibble. The palate is very well- balanced with a rounded, caressing entry. There is certainly tremendous weight in the mouth and abundant botrytis, especially upon the unctuous finish. This has great potential - a fantastic wine from one of the finest Barsac estates. Drink now-2035+
