1947 Coutet, Sauternes (high-mid shoulder/good labels) (1.5L)
Top Pick!
Classified as a First Growth in 1855, Coutet is one of longest lived of Bordeaux's sweet wines thanks to its legendary acidity. When young it has tremendous freshness and finesse. With a great deal of age, it develops golden highlights and a thick opulence, with luscious sweetness and roasted notes of botrytis. In "Wines of France", writer Alexis Lichine noted that Coutet was more popular than Climens, but on the drier side.

Bid on this bottle of 1947 Pichon Lalande, Pauillac. Vinous: "The 1947 Pichon-Lalande originates from the same source as a bottle that was part of a horizontal in 2013. The bouquet is typical of this vintage, with a light smear of dark chocolate and marmalade notes infusing the black fruit, but not quite as delineated as the best ancient vintages of Pichon-Lalande that I have tasted. Possibly this is the result of a vinification that required more temperature control than was then available. The palate shows more composure; in fact, it is quite a nimble Pauillac compared to its peers, not a rich or decadent wine. There’s a dab of balsamic on the finish. Thoroughly enjoyable, but not profound. Tasted at the Pichon-Lalande vertical in London. (NM)" (04/2018)
