Château Coutet 2015 – Barsac, 1er Cru Classé Sauternes-Barsac

Château Coutet 2015 – Barsac, 1er Cru Classé Sauternes-Barsac

The nose is fruity, fine, elegant and incisive. It reveals notes of crystallized lemon and candied citrus associated with slight notes of beeswax as well as a hint of sweet spice and a discreet hint of flowers / Verbena. The palate is fruity, fresh, mineral, racy, incisive, elegant, well balanced and offers a beautiful volume and richness (but well-balanced). In the mouth this wine expresses notes of candied lemon and crystallized mandarin associated with small mineral notes (terroir) as well as discreet notes of spices, honey, candied apricot, and fine touches of candied pineapple. Good length. A beautiful wine made in the Coutet style ! Beautiful potential !
