Peter Maude Fine Wines
2020, Château Coutet, BARSAC, 1er Grand Cru Classé, Grand Vin de Sauternes
$63.25 inc. GST
Bordeaux blend: Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle.
Bright gold colour. Rich with creme brulee, pineapples in syrup and baked vanilla. The palate has luscious fruit but moderated sugar for Coutet, allowing the vinous qualities to shine through. Ginger, cinnamon and vanilla mingle with luscious, poached stone fruits through to the finish. 92-94 Farr Vintners, Tasting.
Bright, yellow gold colour, with citrus, apricot, pineapple and a ton of mango fruits on the palate. Silky texture with spikes of lime juice bringing pep and definition. Saffron and white pepper add even more lift through the finish, this is excellent and easy to recommend. 94 Jane Anson, Decanter
