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.

Other Reviews....
Tempting dried fruit here with spice and floral character. Full and creamy with attractive acidity and a textural finish.

James Suckling

Flowers, pineapples, mango, apricot and candied lemon notes get the wine going. The palate, with its layers of sweet, ripe and overripe, honeyed yellow, and orange fruits is fresh, long, intense, balanced, and most importantly, delicious! And isn't that the purpose of a wine? Drink from 2025-2055.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

95% Sémillon, 4% Sauvignon Blanc, 1% Muscadelle. RS 158 g/l. Cask sample.
Subtle and citrusy on the nose with a bitter-orange edge. Rich and full on the palate the botrytis evident on the finish, a bitter note providing persistence. Reserved but should develop further.
