Château Coutet (375ml) 2012

$84.00 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."

17/20 Rich, concentrated Barsac with a high level of residual sugar (145 gm/l) and honey, dried mango notes. Fairly dense, layered flavours with a full-bodied palate. Two samples tasted: one was fresh and lifted while the other was dull and heavy.

17/20 Mid gold. More delicate on the nose than many. Light notes of apricot and honey, even a touch floral. Quite savoury on the palate, perhaps from the oak. Sweet and fresh and a careful 'dryness' on the finish that adds finesse. It's obviously not dry but there's a textural dryness that works well with the sugar sweetness. Very moreish and long.

90 The 2012 has a lifted bouquet of quince, marmalade, and yellow flowers that is precise and focused. The palate is viscous and convincing on the opening, offering good depth and cohesion with satisfactory botrytis, though it tails away ever so slightly on the finish. Still, this is a commendable effort and is another fine 2012 Barsac.
