Château Coutet 2011, Barsac, Grand Cru Classé Sauternes-Barsac

The nose is fresh, fruity, relatively powerful, intense and incisive. It reveals notes of nuts, candied citrus and candied orange zests associated with small notes of ginger, candied physalis as well as a subtle hint of honey, almond and botrytis (discreet). The palate is fruity, fresh, racy, incisive, gourmand, aromatic, elegant and offers a beautiful acid frame, a beautiful finesse, a beautiful roundness, unctuosity, a beautiful/slight freshness as well as a beautiful minerality and definition. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of candied lemon, candied mandarin and small notes of candied mirabelle/physalis associated with hints of pineapple in syrup as well as discreet hints of honey, almond, small yellow stone fruits and discreet hints of spices. Good length and persistence.
