The 2017 Chateau Coutet is a beautiful wine that is needing a bit more time in the bottle to gain complexity. Aromatically intense, the wine shows good range from honey and nutmeg infused creme brûlée tones that combine with lighter wet stone and brandy soaked pear aromas that take shape in the glass. Flavors of vanilla cream and butterscotch with apricot jelly accents highlight this gorgeous wine. The palate has great tension and verve, revealing a silky mouthfeel. The exceedingly long finish lingers long on the tongue. Give this beautiful wine a few years in the cellar prior to enjoying. Drink 2022-2040- 94

Blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. Rich and ripe orange marmalade and apricot aromas and flavors. Hints of white flowers, honey and ginger. Layers of well balanced acidity. Lighter in color than a typical Sauternes but the wine is bold and full bodied. Mouth coating. Lively, deep and fresh!
