2018 Coutet, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1421715 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Barrel Sample. This wine's ripeness is intense, just hinting at an impressive future. The dry core of botrytis balances the honey and the spice, along with fresh lemon curd. This is likely to be a very fine wine. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Coutet has super intense, well-delineated notions of warm pineapple, green guava and baked pineapple with hints of mandarin peel, gingerbread, orange blossoms and lime leaves. The palate is alive with energetic tropical fruit and exotic spice notes with a lovely satiny texture and fantastic freshness, finishing with epic length. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Coutet is more backward than its peers, but it is well defined with dried honey, white flowers and subtle saffron scents. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity courtesy of its limestone soils. This has good tension even if the finish would benefit from more complexity. There is a lovely spicy aftertaste that hangs around for 30+ seconds, completing a very appealing Coutet that should give three decade's of drinking pleasure. Drink 2023-2050. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)
