Chateau Coutet 2011

Bordeaux - Barsac - White Chateau Coutet Chateau Coutet 2011 1087/11
  • Parker : 93
  • J. Robinson : 17

2011 1er Cru Classe from Barsac

The Chateau Coutet vineyard stretches over 38.5 hectares of enclosed vines. it is located on the exceptional Barsac terroir, the agerage age of the vines is 38. This 2011 vintage is a blend of 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle. 

The wine displays a beautiful copper-tinted golden colour. The nose directly gives off stewed fruit (apricot, peach), honey and vanilla notes. On aeration, the 2011 Chateau Coutet reveals fresher notes of citrusy zests, especially lemon hints. The full-bodied, round and generous palate combines the fruit strength with a well-mastered and elegant vanilla-flavoured wood. The wine carries a good concentration on the mid-palate. It is then aromatically rich and complex on vanilla, candied exotic fruit notes such as mango and honey which bring unctuousness, enhanced by the finesse of the Sauvignon. The finish is precise, rich with a delicious character and keeps a good fruity freshness. 



Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The 2011 Château Coutet has a distinctive but attractive bouquet: clear honey, rosewater, peach and just a touch of barley sugar that pins it down to Barsac. The palate is medium-bodied and viscous in texture. There is more harmony here than the nose, nicely understated with quince and barley sugar, dovetailing into an elegant finish. I would prefer just a touch more weight and persistence but otherwise this is a fine Sauternes even if it does not quite meet my expectations from barrel, primarily since it is just missing Coutet's usual razor-sharp acidity that imparts such electricity into its finest vintages. Nevertheless, this will provide much pleasure over the next two or three decades.
