Buy Ch Coutet Sauternes-Barsac 2003****
Wine Advocate 89 points - Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. This bottle of Coutet ?03 was showing slight reduction on the geranium-scented nose, although it seems to sort that out and offer lanolin and melted wax aromas with time. The palate is viscous and quite spicy on the entry ? dried honey, marjoram, white pepper and quince, whilst the finish offers an attractive oxidative note. Coutet?s limestone soils mean it thrives on acidity and race, but in 2003 I think the heat of the summer just knocked this great Barsac sideways. Drink now-2018. Tasted April 2013. (Jun 2013)
