TASTING NOTES

"With coaxing, the pale lemon colored 2016 Coutet slowly unfurls to give a myriad of preserved lemons, pineapple pastry, almond croissant, fresh ginger and lime blossoms scents with nuances of chalk dust, white pepper, star anise and cedar. Rich, seductive and yet exquisitely balanced, the satiny-textured palate has layer upon layer of citrus and savory notions, finishing very long and spicy." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"The vibrant, tropical fruit-coulis character draws you into this concentrated and elegant Barsac. Then the crisp acidity and a wave of lemon and mineral character comes through, driving the finish out in the direction of the horizon. Drink or hold." JamesSuckling.com

"Unctuous in feel, with marzipan, candied orange peel and praline notes leading the way for a juicy display of mango, peach and papaya flavors. The rich finish has a nice toasty hint. Best from 2023 through 2038. 5,333 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Complex, savoury nose and really round, intense, satin-textured fruit with a dramatically spicy undertow. Very clean although a second tasting sample pressed on me seemed oakier and more raw than the first." JancisRobinson.com
