    A blend of 94% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc, and 1% Muscadelle, with 158 g/L residual sugar, the 2022 Coutet is pale to medium straw in color. After a little swirling, the nose erupts with gorgeous lime cordial, fresh grapefruit, and mandarin peel scents, followed by wafts of wet pebbles, freshly shaved ginger, and beeswax. The palate is vibrant and shimmery with fantastic intensity and tension, finishing long and layered.

    The 2022 Coutet has a beautifully-defined nose with pure botrytised fruit: tangerine, saffron, honeysuckle and orange rind hints. This has impressive focus. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous opening, fine acidity, pure and harmonious. A tensile and persistent finish drags you back for another sip. Superb.

    Château Coutet

    This Bordeaux sweet wine from the Barsac is 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. Situated in the Garonne Valley and in close proximity to the Ciron River, the 95 acres of vines within the property’s walls enjoy an advantageous microclimate and an exceptional terroir to produce a sweet wine with a signature style. Château Coutet’s vineyards are planted with the traditional varietals of the Barsac and Sauternes appellations: Sémillon, Sauvignon blanc, and Muscadelle. With an average of 38 years, the vines have developed a network of deep roots to extract elements from the limestone and clay-based terroir, giving the grapes freshness, richness and strength. The wine is aged for 18 months in 100% new French oak barrels following in-barrel fermentation.
