Chateau Coutet 2015, Barsac 750ml
Château Coutet is one of the oldest wineries in the Sauternes appellation of Bordeaux. The history of the winery as a wine estate began in 1643. In 1643, Charles Le Guerin became the owner of the estate, and under his management the estate became one of the first vineyards in the Sauternes appellation. The original meaning of Coutet is "knife", and it is characterized by its strong and sharpness. President of the United States and wine connoisseur Thomas Jefferson has commented that Coutet's liqueurs are the best in Barsac.
Chateau Coutet 2015, The nose is marked by a dominance of exotic fruits: mango, ginger, and pineapple. Added to this are the peach aromas and candied bitter oranges. On the palate the attack is remarkably fresh considering the power of wine. The mid-palate reveals a nice balance highlighting the minerality of our terroir. The 2015 vintage is defined by its finesse.
