#58 Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2021

This wine is beautifully textured. The orange-peel and candied fruitiness are balanced by a dry core of botrytis that gives the wine weight while keeping a light touch. It has all the tight freshness and minerality typical of this great estate. Drink from 2026. - Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast

Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Coutet has super intense, well-delineated notions of warm pineapple, green guava and baked pineapple with hints of mandarin peel, gingerbread, orange blossoms and lime leaves. The palate is alive with energetic tropical fruit and exotic spice notes with a lovely satiny texture and fantastic freshness, finishing with epic length. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

There is clear quality here, with good persistency and some lovely minerality, if relatively little acidity. It has a strong golden colour, suggesting concentration, followed by luscious fruit flavours through the palate of apricot, peach, nectarine and cantaloupe melon, and bitter herbs on the finish. 50% new oak was used. A yield of just 3hl/ha. - Jane Anson, Decanter 

The 2018 Coutet has a very intense bouquet with marmalade, clementines, mango and light apple blossom scents, all delivered with exceptional precision and delineation. The palate is vibrant and tensile on the opening thanks to a killer line of acidity that slices through the viscous fruit. There is so much tangible energy in this Coutet. This comes highly recommended. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media

 

Deep gold. Highly spiced, smelling of burnished gold and a touch of mushroom. So intense but also notably fresh for this vintage. Ripe, broad and full of oranges and apricots. Needs a little more acidity and botrytis complexity for greatness but masses of sweet pleasure and a long almondy finish. - JancisRobinson .com
