A heavenly dessert wine, the 2015 Château Coutet boasts a huge nose of caramelized citrus, crème brûlée, tangerine, and honeysuckle. With huge richness and sweetness, moderate acidity, a thick, fat mouthfeel and a blockbuster finish, it’s borderline over the top yet holds it together. It will be interesting to see how this evolves, but it’s undeniably gorgeous today. - Jeb Dunnuck (formerly Wine Advocate)

Flattering, with a mix of pineapple, peach, pear and yellow apple flavors that give this both treble and base. Gilded with heather and lemon curd on the finish, with a flash of piecrust that should blossom as this matures. Best from 2020 through 2040.  - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Quite dense and spicy without being that sweet. Lots of density and extremely difficult to spit! Long and creditable. Good tanginess too. You could drink this already but that would probably be foolish. Lots of grip. - Jancis Robinson

The 2015 Coutet comes with 153 grams per liter of residual sugar at 13.8% alcohol. It has a fragrant bouquet with acacia honey, citrus scents and a touch of melted butter, all very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive purity, those limestone soils imparting the acidity that defined this Barsac, and lending great precision and tension on the live-wire finish. This is a wonderful Coutet that feels energetic - a compressed spring coil that will drink earlier than the likes of Climens or de Fargues, but has the DNA to age gracefully over 25-30 years. - Neal Martin, Wine Advcoate

A Coutet with great depth and fruit. So much dried tropical fruit character, bright acidity and fruit sweetness. Vivid and clean. - James Suckling

The 2015 Coutet is nicely lifted, gracious and understated. Candied apple, Jolly Rancher and exotic flowers are all nicely balanced in this attractive, mid-weight Sauternes. This is a very pretty Barsac built on aromatic nuance and bright, salivating acidity. 

Dried honey, orange zest and hints of walnut on the nose. Already very expressive. The palate is thick and viscous with delicious caramelised fruit. A tangy, marmalade infused finish that is powerful, yet elegant. A class act. GVWM
