Brilliant straw colour with golden edges. Intoxicating scents of honeyed apricots, peaches and marmalade blossom from the glass followed by dried pineapple, faint hints of raisins and spice. Prodigiously rich with a thick viscous textural feel and outstanding concentration the palate boasts decadent flavours of honey, dried apricots and fresh ripe peaches over infusions of sweet ripe pineapple, tropical fruit and light spice. Finishes with a good lick of freshness that keeps everything in balance. Long powerful aftertaste of honeyed apricots, marmalade, ripe peaches and dried pineapple. A rich, luscious Coutet.

Other Reviews...
Plump at first, with a praline note around the heather, pineapple and nectarine flavors. Stretches out, with a juicy feel, while orange blossom and white peach accents fill in, imparting lift and cut. This packs a bit of power, but there's lots of buried freshness as well. The finish is seriously long already.

J.M. - Wine Spectator

Ripe tropical fruit, vanilla and herbs intermingle with smoky botrytis. Dense, rich flavours of custard and toffee apples, saffron and a hint of noble rot bitterness on the long finish.

Decanter

The Château Coutet 2014 is a blend of 75% Sémillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle and delivers...cue the drumroll...a whopping 162 grams per liter of residual sugar, the highest level of any Sauternes that I have data for. As you would expect, the total acidity is slightly, but not dramatically lower than its peers at 3.9 grams per liter (compared to say, 4.3 grams per liter at Doisy-Daëne.) This Coutet '14 has a complex bouquet with razor-sharp, minerally, citrus fruit mixed with wild honey and a touch of Riesling-like petrol. The palate is totally convincing. There is a great thrust of rich botrytized fruit sliced through with Coutet’s trademark acidity, despite the spoonfuls of sugar, that lends this such vibrancy and tension. It possesses and almost clinical precision with long persistence on the finish. This is a divine Coutet that may warrant a higher score subject to how it evolves in barrel.
