Chateau Coutet 2007

Chateau Coutet – First Growth Barsac

Chateau Coutet, BarsacBill Blatch: With its later ripening vineyard, Coutet really benefited from those long autumn days of sunshine, and the sugar build-up was correspondingly more intense. This is a powerful and rich Coutet, yet with a subtler side to it in the form of underlying brightness and freshness of fruit and a lovely refreshing touch of new oak. This is clearly going to need time but you can start getting pleasure out of it now.
