The lighter-bodied, drier 1988 is less weighty than the 1989, with attractive, spicy, vanillin, citrus scents, medium body, and an earthy note that kept my score from going higher.

Extraordinary complexity and finesse are the hallmarks of this earth-scented, butter-laced, honeyed, lemon-flavored gem. The finish seems to never end thanks to all that great acidity. Better after 1998.

Lovely, floral nose ; sweet, fullish, assertive flavour, very good acidity.

(12-2013) 1988-1989-1990. Three exceptional years for Sauternes. This wine is no exception. A light ambered yellow colour, it’s notes are very aromatic of white flowers, vanilla, very expressive. The mouth is unctuous, not too round but a great softness. The finish is incredibly long.

Château Coutet
Country France
Château informations
The history of Castle Coutet merges with that of its illustrious owners. The area, very old, was acquired in 1788 by Gabriel Filhot, President of the Parliament of Bordeaux. In 1794, the latter died on the scaffold. The property reverted to his little son, the Marquis de Lur-Saluzzo, who had already Yquem, and Malle Filhot. As at the Chateau d'Yquem, the old vertical presses are still in service and must, after settling, is fermented in oak barrels. Premier Cru Classé 1855, Château Coutet produces nectar of exceptional longevity. Editor Marcel Baly since 1977, the wine has won rich liquid, while retaining its freshness and grace.
