Château Coutet (375ml) 2010

$115.00 per bottle

Stock: Available

"One of the classics of the region, Coutet is a model of elegance and balanced sweetness. Coutet has always been one of the leading as well as one of the largest estates of Barsac. Famous for an elegant, less sweet powerful wine, Coutet is usually well made, stylish and probably a more flexible wine to serve with a variety of food dishes than many intense, super concentrated, lavishly oaked wines that this region produces in abundance."

The Château Coutet 2010 was a beauty from barrel with its payload of 154gms of residual sugar and sure enough, after a year in bottle it is one of the most compelling sweet wines in the vintage.

It shows immense clarity on the nose, with the oak still a little prominent at the moment, but it will integrate with bottle age. The palate is well-balanced with a fine line of acidity. There is an engaging sense of tension here, real drive and mineralite towards the finish, like a cousin of Doisy-Daene but with a little more bravura. There is a sense of purpose about this 2010 Sauternes, with a persistent finish that keeps you coming back for more. Bravo!
