"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." - Neal Martin

Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

Acknowledged by Thomas Jefferson, third president of the USA, as the best Sauternes in Barsac, Château Coutet has been producing wine since 1643. Officially recognised as one of the Classified First Growths of the Sauternes and Barsac appellations in 1855, the winery was bought by Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1994. The winemaking team is now advised by the technical staff from Château Mouton de Rothschild.

An English fortress built in the 13th century, Château Coutet is one of the most famous wines of the Sauternes-Barsac appellation. Named ‘Coutet’ from the Gascon word for ‘knife’ which evokes sharpness and vivacity, both of which are present in this unique style of wine, which has justifiably earned the Château international prestige.

Bordeaux, in the southwest of France, needs little introduction as one of the world's most famous, prestigious and prolific wine regions. The majority of Bordeaux wines (nearly 90 percent of production volume) are the dry, medium- and full-bodied red Bordeaux Blends that established its reputation.

The finest (and most expensive) of these are the wines from the great châteaux of the Haut-Médoc and the Right Bank appellations Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. The former is focused (at the top level) on Cabernet Sauvignon, the latter pair on on Merlot.

The legendary reds are complemented by high-quality white wines based on Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. These range from dry whites to challenge the best from the Burgundy region (Pessac-Léognan is particularly renowned) to the sweet, botrytized nectars of Sauternes.
