Chateau Coutet 2020

The elegance and aromatic finesse of a Barsac white wine

The estate

Chateau Coutet is located in the Barsac appellation in the Sauternes region. In 1787, Thomas Jefferson, soon-to-be president of the United States remarked that Chateau Coutet was the best Sauternes wine from Barsac. The word "Coutet" is derived from the Gascon word for “knife.” This word perfectly sums up the unique style of the estate's wines, which are sharp, lively and fresh.

The vintage

2020 was a vintage marked by difficult weather conditions from the start. The end of March was punctuated by episodes of frost, prompting the vineyard team to light controlled by fires during the course of several nights. The warm and rainy spring favored the significant development of the vines. Thunderstorms in May, accompanied by hail, did not impact the vineyard. While the summer was particularly dry, the thunderstorms of August 15 helped the vineyard, ensuring optimal ripening of the grapes. A drought set in until the harvest for the sweet wines, which began on September 16.

Vinification and aging

Manual harvest with six successive sortings from September 16 to October 26. Fermentation is carried out in French oak barrels, as is the aging for a period of 18 months.

The blend

The Chateau Coutet 2020 is made from a blend of Semillon (95%), Sauvignon Blanc (4%) and Muscadelle (1%)

The tasting

A wine of great finesse, the Chateau Coutet 2020 seduces with its fresh bouquet of floral notes (lilies of the valley and grapefruit flowers), along with its lively palate.
