Wine Spectator, March 2013

Offers a bright inner core of honeysuckle, pineapple, star fruit and white peach flavors, coated for now with heather honey, marzipan and mango notes. Fresh and racy through the finish, this is an elegant beauty, showing...

A sweet wine with honey and sliced apple character with lemon. Full body, medium sweet and a bright finish. It's layered and fascinating. So much spicy, botrytis and dried mushroom powder. Turns creamy. Drink or hold.

TheWineCellarInsider.com, September 2014

Even though this is a baby, it's easy to see this is a beauty that serves up the perfect amount of ripe and over ripe, tropical fruit, honey, vanilla, orange peel and apricot on the showy nose. Sweet, rich and balancing...

Vinous, February 2024

The 2010 Coutet demanded some coaxing like the 2009, eventually offering sensual aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine and quince, although I feel the 2009 has a greater presence. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity...

Wine Enthusiast, February 2014

This is a very spicy wine with weight, great depth of flavor and concentration. Fine acidity cuts through the core, balancing sweetness and adding freshness to flavors of wild thyme-honey and orange marmalade. Drink the...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2020

(91? points) Medium lemon-gold colored, the 2010 Coutet is relatively evolved, revealing honey nut, ginger ale and baked peaches scents with touches of straw, fresh figs, quince paste and nutmeg. The palate is...

An English fortress built in the 13th century, Chateau Coutet became a wine producing estate in 1643. Previously owned by the Lur-Saluces family, it was once home to Chateau d’Yquem’s horse stables, transformed in the 19th century into a 110-meter long cellar, the longest in the appellation.

The estate has 38.5 hectares under vines which is primarily planted with Semillon and smaller amounts of Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. The vines' deep roots extract elements from a limestone and clay-based soil, giving the grapes freshness, richness and strength. For this reason the wine carries the name "Coutet,” derived from the Gascon word for knife, to signify the fresh, lively and crisp palate that is the estate's signature style.

In 1787, former U.S. President Thomas Jefferson, then ambassador to France, celebrated Chateau Coutet as the best Sauternes from Barsac. In 1855, the estate was classified as a First Growth and recognized for its continued excellence. Today, as the oldest and largest Barsac estate, Chateau Coutet stays true to its tradition of distinction and quality. The finest Barsac-Sauternes is produced annually under the direction and management of the Baly family as well as the technical and commercial collaboration of the Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A. company.

In its youth, Chateau Coutet displays generous notes of white flowers, citrus fruits, honey and vanilla. Ginger and pineapple are very typical aromas in a young release. Time brings out deeper, warmer notes in which spices combine with exotic nectars and candied fruits, such as gingerbread mingled with marmalade. Age also enhances the harmony of its roasted botrytis character and its distinct aromas to give Chateau Coutet a delicate and unique bouquet that is unsurpassed.
