The Château Coutet vines' deep roots extract elements from its terroir to give the grapes freshness, richness and strength. For this reason the estate carries the name "Coutet,” derived from the Gascon's word for knife, to signify the fresh, lively and crisp palate that is the wine's signature style. In its youth, the wines display generous notes of white flowers, citrus fruits, honey and vanilla. Ginger and pineapple are very typical aromas in a young Château Coutet.
Its nose, albeit discreet, opens up on a multitude of aromatic notes, fine and subtle, among which one can find touches of mild spices, honey, vanilla, pretty notes of toast, with possibly a light hint of cocoa, all in all supported by a tinge of small candied fruits as well as citrus fruits. Just like on the nose, the finesse on the palate is predominant over the power. It displays an elegant mix of wellintegrated aromatic notes giving an impression of liquor, which finishes off on a beautiful mineral freshness, typical of Barsac's wines. The wine shows a beautiful balance, with mildness.
