Notes from the Winemaker:
Straw color (still in barrel), the nose has lovely aromatic notes of tropical fruit, such as lychee, mango, and pineapple, followed by aromas of quince, toasted almonds and acacia flowers.

The palate is round and smooth with a good balance between freshness and fullness. This wine distinguishes itself by a good density and remarkable finesse.

The finish is long, with its vivacity and its power. Overall, this vintage is marked by its elegance.

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"95–97. Barrel Sample. The wine is ripe yet stylish and pure. It has a great balance between bright acidity and rich fruitiness. It is a very fine wine with great aging potential, as it hints at the more opulent future to come." - Roger Voss (4/1/2016)

95 Poins - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Coutet is pale lemon colored with intense grapefruit, lemon pie and pineapple notes with touches of crushed rocks, honeycomb and lime zest plus a waft of orange blossoms. Rich, opulent and layered with loads of tropical and citrus notes, it has wonderful freshness, finishing long." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Aug 31, 2018)

95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Flattering, with a mix of pineapple, peach, pear and yellow apple flavors that give this both treble and bass. Gilded with heather and lemon curd on the finish, with a flash of piecrust that should blossom as this matures. Best from 2020 through 2040. 4,583 cases made." - JM (Mar 31, 2018)

94 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"A rich and deep wine, the bitter orange and mandarin coming in on the finish. It has a silky texture and delivers a beautiful fresh finish. Powerful, intense and complex. Drinking Window 2020 - 2040" - Jane Anson (Nov 30, 2017)

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Conentrated, creamy and elegant, this is a beautiful Barsac with delicate exotic-fruit character and a very long, rather oily finish. You could drink it now, but it will gain a lot from extended ageing." (Feb 5, 2018)

90-93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2015 Coutet is nicely lifted, gracious and understated. Candied apple, Jolly Rancher and exotic flowers are all nicely balanced in this attractive, mid-weight Sauternes. This is a very pretty Barsac built on aromatic nuance and bright, salivating acidity." - Antonio Galloni (Apr 2016)
