The 2006 Chateau Coutet is a fresh, lively and crisp wine. In it's youth, the wine display generous notes of white flowers, citrus fruits, honey and vanilla. Upon maturation, warmer notes in which spices combine with exotic nectars and candied fruits are prominent. Age also enhances the harmony of its roasted Botrytis character and its distinct aromas to give Château Coutet a delicate and unique bouquet that is unsurpassed.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 92
"Light to medium gold with a greenish hue, this wine exhibits wonderfully pure notes of wood spice such as vanillin, honeyed citrus, a hint of under-ripe peach, and touches of creme brulee and marmalade. With great acidity and finesse, this is a medium-bodied, impressively endowed, but generally very racy, restrained style of wine that should age beautifully for 25 or more years. ..it has nobility tattooed all over it."
