Owned and operated by the Baly family since 1977, Bordeaux’s Château Coutet derives its name from the Gascon word for knife, referencing the “cut” imparted by the Barsac appellation’s unique soil, whose limestone content gives its sweet wines their signature crisp, lively impression. Director of marketing Aline Baly notes that 2014 was a remarkable vintage, with the highest combined levels of acidity and alcohol in more than 20 years, resulting in this beautifully balanced blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. Mid-October rains also created favorable conditions for the development of botrytis.

Château Coutet's 2010 vintage offers a beautiful concentration of aromas with notes of dried mango and apricots, as well as peach glaze, honey and citrus marmalade. These flavors are then followed by touches of orange blossom and fig. The wine shows a great complexity; it is rich and dense while at the same time offering an impressive freshness. It has a superb balance between the power of sweetness and its minerality. The finish is full, powerful and persistent. This is a wine that is already starting to express itself, however time will only enhance its aromatic palette. This vintage has a very long aging potential.

Wine Advocate (93-95) Points "The 2010 Chateau Coutet has 154-gms/litre residual sugar, one of the highest in Sauternes/Barsac. It is endowed with a delightful bouquet of freshly sliced mango, Tropicana and a touch of honey, with good definition and minerality. The palate is medium-bodied with very impressive balance and poise, and is slightly viscous in the mouth, with almond, lemon curd and a touch of orange peel. The finish is composed and long. The 2010 Coutet is very impressive for the vintage, although I suggest not quite reaching the stellar heights of the magnificent 2009.The 2010 Chateau Coutet has 154-gms/litre residual sugar, one of the highest in Sauternes/Barsac.

The 2010 Coutet has quite an intense bouquet with linseed oil and wax resin infusing the dried honey aromas, then orange pith and a touch of saffron. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Harmonious and extremely well focused, this conveys a sense of energy on the finish that makes you want to return for another sip. Excellent. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal.

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 terrific cut and precision. Best from 2015 through 2030.

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 wine from 2017.
