2021 Chateau Coutet (375ml) Pre-Arrival Offer
One of the superstars of Barsac, the wines are typically noted for their elegance and style rather than weight and richness. At 38.5 hectares in size, Coutet is one of the largest vineyards in the region, with plantings consisting of 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle. Fermentation takes place in barrel of which 50% are new with further ageing in oak for 18 months.
The 2021 Coutet needs time to cohere in the glass, eventually offering scents of dried honey, pressed flowers and quince. It just needs a little more pizzazz. The palate is well balanced with fine acidity and good weight and tension, showing the energy that is slightly lacking on the nose at the moment. Maybe it could benefit from more unctuousness on the finish, but this remains an enjoyable Barsac that will gain complexity with bottle age. Drink 2025-2045.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Honeysuckle, pineapple, cashew nuts, lemon meringue pie, orange blossoms and honey on the nose move you to know more about this vibrant, racy, sweet treat. Drink from 2023-2050.
