2016 Coutet, Sauternes

SKU #1402576 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark One of the top sweet wines in this report is the 2016 Château Coutet, which has the vintage’s plush, opulent style as well as thrilling purity and good acids. Pineapple, white flowers, sugared peach, and honeyed notes all emerge from this full-bodied, layered, balanced Barsac that’s already impossible to resist yet will evolve gracefully 2+ decades. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is dense, mingling spicy nutmeg along with superb ripe honey and marmalade flavors. With its balanced acidity and opulence, it is going to be a great wine. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Oh that's lovely. Ginger and sumac spice, and a gorgeous richness with the perfect balance of minerality. Rich but pure botrytis character and gently curling smoky notes leap out of the glass. Amazing persistency, easily one of the best wines in the tasting. This is excellent; succulent and mouthwatering. Drinking Window 2022 - 2050 (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The vibrant, tropical fruit-coulis character draws you into this concentrated and elegant Barsac. Then the crisp acidity and a wave of lemon and mineral character comes through, driving the finish out in the direction of the horizon. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale lemon colored, the 2016 Coutet reveals gorgeous quince paste, candied ginger and key lime pie scents with touches of lemon marmalade and peach compote. Full-bodied, rich and seriously seductive, it has a lively line cutting through the sweet, dense layers and epically long finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Unctuous in feel, with marzipan, candied orange peel and praline notes leading the way for a juicy display of mango, peach and papaya flavors. The rich finish has a nice toasty hint. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)
