Wine Spectator  

Very lightly toasty, this is more floral for now, with lively honeysuckle and pineapple notes up front, giving way to richer hints of warm brioche, fig, glazed pear and lemon shortbread that should emerge more with time. The long, lacy finish has the poise and balance for long-term cellaring. Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. Best from 2014 through 2034. 5,000 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast  

96-98 Barrel sample. A wine that shows intense spice, with ginger and grated nutmeg. This lies over the top of the ripest yellow fruits, added to mango, sweet pears and a fresh, final character. Complex wine with an immense future.

Wine Advocate  

Pale to medium gold colored, the 2009 Coutet leaps from the glass with warm apple pie, dried mango, fresh straw, lemongrass, ginger and crème caramel notes. The rich, concentrated, unctuous flavors are lifted by amazing freshness, finishing epically long, layered and with a tantalizing nuttiness.

Château Coutet Tasting Notes  
Classified as first growth in 1855, Chateau Coutet accomplishes its mission of excellence. It has the freshness and fines that one comes to expect from the great wines of Bordeaux. Its elegant liveliness and the sensuality of its aromas classify it among the best Sauternes. You will appreciate the perfect harmony of its bouquet and the roasted hints of Botrytis which gave Coutet, as the wine ages, the delicacy of an unrivalled bouquet. When young, the wine hints of the fine aromas of orange blossoms, citrus fruit, honey and vanilla. As the wine ages, it develops depth and warmth. A spiciness is also apparent, mingled with hints of exotic flowers and candied citrus.
