Cellar/Tasting Notes "One of the outstanding successes of the 2009 vintage, this may surpass the superlative 2007. It has a more understated nose at the moment, but is very well defined with honey, white peach, orange peel and crushed stones. The palate has a viscous entry, is very well balanced, very powerful with..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2009 Coutet has a very intense nose of apricot, papaya, honeysuckle and orange cordial that is very well defined.

Again 80% Roussanne and 20% Grenache blanc vinified in tank, the wine displays the typical tropical fruit notes intermixed with rose petals, crushed..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Light, bright gold, with a hint of green. Ripe pear and orange on the nose, with notes of nougat and yellow plum adding complexity.
