Sattes Gelb mit grün-goldenen Reflexen. Betörendes Bouquet mit reifen Sultaninen und Papaya, dahinter Harznoten und Zimt. Am öligen, buttrigen Gaumen mit perfekter Balance und delikater Mineralik. Süssholz, Karamell und feiner Bitterkeit im sehr langen Finale. Auf dem Weg zur höheren Wertung! 18.5/20. Weinwisser
Pale lemon colored, the 2016 Coutet reveals gorgeous quince paste, candied ginger and key lime pie scents with touches of lemon marmalade and peach compote. Full-bodied, rich and seriously seductive, it has a lively line cutting through the sweet, dense layers and epically long finish. Wine Advocate
Plump, with a mouthful of tangerine, peach and clementine notes laced with a ginger thread. A twinge of bitter orange adds cut on the finish. Score range: 92-95. Wine Spectator Reviewed by James Molesworth
18 Monate in französischen barriques gereift. 75% Sémillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Muscadelle.
Weitere Informationen über das Weingut Chateau Coutet
An English fortress built in the 13th Century, this citadel with its square tower, a design typical of the era’s military constructions, became a wine producing estate in 1643. Previously owned by the Lur-Saluces family, the property was home to Chateau d’Yquem’s horse stables, transformed in the late 19th Century into a 110-meter long cellar (the longest in the appellation). A second round tower in the property’s northern plot, a Château Coutet landmark, was built originally to breed pigeons and peacocks for the region’s Gascon lords. Vertical wine presses from the 1920s, a 14th Century chapel and a Bordeaux cobblestone courtyard are a testament to the estate’s rich architectural and regional history.
