Château Coutet, 1er Cru Classé, Barsac, 2021

5 cases
Equiv. £31.40 per bottle

Tasting Note:

A fresh and very pretty nose with orange blossom and candied orange aromas to the fore. Dried pineapple dots the elegant palate, supported by great acidity and lovely clear fruit. This is such a fine Sauternes, the product of a notoriously cold terroir that is always begins harvest 4-5 days after Climens and around 12 after Yquem. Sadly 90% of the harvest was lost to frost in 2021, but what remains is excellent. 135 grams of residual sugar, as opposed to a more normal 145 grams.
