"This shows the vivid, racy side of Barsac, with streaming flavors of pineapple, yellow apple, green plum and white ginger, displaying lovely energy from start to finish. Ends with enough honeysuckle and orange blossom notes to balance the richness. Best from 2020 through 2035. "

Wine Advocate 93-95+
"The Château Coutet 2014 is a blend of 75% Sémillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle and delivers...cue the drumroll...a whopping 162 grams per liter of residual sugar, the highest level of any Sauternes that I have data for. As you would expect, the total acidity is slightly, but not dramatically lower than its peers at 3.9 grams per liter (compared to say, 4.3 grams per liter at Doisy-Daëne.) This Coutet '14 has a complex bouquet with razor-sharp, minerally, citrus fruit mixed with wild honey and a touch of Riesling-like petrol. The palate is totally convincing. There is a great thrust of rich botrytized fruit sliced through with Coutet’s trademark acidity, despite the spoonfuls of sugar, that lends this such vibrancy and tension. It possesses and almost clinical precision with long persistence on the finish. This is a divine Coutet that may warrant a higher score subject to how it evolves in barrel."

Buy two! Drink one now and lay one down. - A bomb of tropical fruit! Mango, pineapple, passion fruit, white peach and apricots draws you in at the nose. Sweet, but fresh, young but ready, the caramelized honey and heavy notes of marmalade is what you'll find in the elegant, surprisingly light finish.
5/5 stars
Fantastic Barsac - Great Barsac which will only improve over time. I poured it at a dessert wine tasting against some great sauternes and ports, and it was the winner. I bought a case and will be laying the rest down for a few years. I highly recommend.
