Château Coutet Barsac 2000
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Barsac|
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 theroasted 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.
A clean 2000, with honey and spice character. Medium to light body. Medium-sweet finish.
