Château Coutet is one of the oldest estates in Sauternes, an appellation with a magical set of conditions that allows it to produce some of the finest sweet wines in the world. Coutet, classified 1er Cru Classé since 1855, has for more than a century an exceptional heritage belonging to the de la Lur Saluces family, of the famous Chateau d'Yquem. It is currently owned and operated by Philippe and Dominique Baly in a technical and commercial partnership with Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA The Coutet is a blend of Sémillon with some Sauvignon Blanc a few percent Muscadelle The fermentation is in 100% new barriques. Aging for 18 months in new French oak barrels.

The Coutet has a pale lemon-gold color, which rolls out of the glass with energetic notes of lemon tart, grapefruit, mango and lime with hints of chopped almonds, honey, candle wax and straw, plus a hint of sea spray. The palate has amazing balance, wrapped in a satiny texture and seamless acidity, with a long and mineral finish. After a few years, delicate notes of spices, exotic fruits, fresh ginger and candied fruits develop in a delicate harmony. The Coutet is rich, seductive yet balanced.
