    Conentrated, creamy and elegant, this is a beautiful Barsac with delicate exotic-fruit character and a very long, rather oily finish. You could drink it now, but it will gain a lot from extended ageing.

    Flattering, with a mix of pineapple, peach, pear and yellow apple flavors that give this both treble and bass. Gilded with heather and lemon curd on the finish, with a flash of piecrust that should blossom as this matures. Best from 2020 through 2040. 4,583 cases made.

    Quite dense and spicy without being that sweet. Lots of density and extremely difficult to spit! Long and creditable. Good tanginess too. You could drink this already but that would probably be foolish. Lots of grip.

    The 2015 Coutet comes with 153 grams per liter of residual sugar at 13.8% alcohol. It has a fragrant bouquet with acacia honey, citrus scents and a touch of melted butter, all very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive purity, those limestone soils imparting the acidity that defined this Barsac, and lending great precision and tension on the live-wire finish. This is a wonderful Coutet that feels energetic - a compressed spring coil that will drink earlier than the likes of Climens or de Fargues, but has the DNA to age gracefully over 25-30 years.

    The 2015 Coutet is nicely lifted, gracious and understated. Candied apple, Jolly Rancher and exotic flowers are all nicely balanced in this attractive, mid-weight Sauternes. This is a very pretty Barsac built on aromatic nuance and bright, salivating acidity.

  • Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is the single largest fine-wine-producing region in the world, with more than 15,000 growers spread over 57 appellations and more than 700 million bottles produced annually. The region boasts a two-thousand-year winemaking history and some of the wine world's most recognized and highly sought-after names. Red Bordeaux blends comprise eighty percent of production, but dry and sweet whites are also well-known. The region is divided into the Left and Right Banks (of the Dordogne River); Cabernet Sauvignon prevails in the former and Merlot in the latter.
