Chateau Coutet 1998

Chateau Coutet – First Growth Barsac

Chateau Coutet, BarsacBill Blatch: Again, that forgotten vintage 1998, overshadowed by its more famous forebear, but all still fresh and soft and lovely. Yet this is Coutet, so we have more highly defined and well-tuned kind of incisive things going on amidst the softness; This is not as rich as the Coutets of the 2000s but with beautiful charm and balance, and many prefer their Coutets this way: they say it allies better with the finesse of the wine and makes it more a multiple occasion wine.
