A superb Sauternes which has a very great coherence of perception by all the world critics. Overall, it operates within a narrow rating range of 94 to 96 and is unanimous.
It can be drunk today, but it will benefit from cellaring for another 2 to 3 years, which will improve its complexity and allow the nose to express itself more than it does today.
The slightly reticent nose suggests aromas of pastry lemon, pineapple, pear, apple, quince, crème brûlée, an orange zest, accompanied by scents of orange blossom and honeysuckle.
On the palate, the wine is soft, rich and opulent with a very good balance between the acid line and the richness of the botrytised fruit. 

 

To be enjoyed with pan-fried foie gras, blue cheese or crème brûlée with candied oranges.

 

Robert Parker : 95/100

The 2015 Coutet is pale lemon in color with intense notes of grapefruit, lemon pie and pineapple with hints of crushed stones, honeycomb and lime zest plus a flood of orange blossom. Rich, opulent and layered with lots of tropical and citrus notes, it has wonderful freshness and a long finish.

Wine Spectator : 95/100 

Flattering, with a blend of pineapple, peach, pear and yellow apple flavors that provide both high and low. The finish is heather golden and lemon curd, with a hint of crisp turnip that should flourish with age. Best consumed between 2020 and 2040. 4583 cases manufactured.

Jeb Dunnuck : 96/100

The 2015 Château Coutet is a divine dessert wine, with a huge nose of caramelized citrus fruits, crème brûlée, tangerine and honeysuckle. With immense richness and sweetness, moderate acidity, a thick and fat palate and a sensational finish, it is as close as possible while keeping its cohesion. It'll be interesting to see how that plays out, but he's undeniably gorgeous today.

La Revue du Vin de France : 19/20

A light spice and a small touch of reduction prevent the fruit from fully delivering on the nose. It is in the mouth that it expresses all the energy of the Barsac basement. And what a finish on a white peach note.

RVF Guide - 2019

 

James Suckling : 94/100

Concentrated, creamy and elegant, this is a beautiful Barsac with a delicate character of exotic fruit and a very long and rather oily finish. You can drink it now, but it will gain a lot as it ages.

James Suckling - February 5, 2018

 

Vinous : 95/100

The 2015 Coutet is a bit reduced on the nose and lacks the scent of some of its peers. Pinched right now - maybe sulking? The palate is well balanced and very harmonious, viscous in texture with perfectly matched acidity and fine delineation and precision towards the end. Once the bouquet awakens, it should be a Barsac / Sauternes of great finesse. Blind tasted at the Bordeaux Southwold 2019 tasting.

Jancis Robinson : 18/20 (96.5 / 100)

Quite dense and spicy without being too sweet. Lots of density and extremely difficult to spit out! Long and believable. Good flavor too. You could drink it already, but that would probably be a mistake. Lots of power.

Falstaff : 94/100

Reinforced golden yellow, silvery reflections, honey of fine flowers, ripe quinces, nuances of yellow fruits, candied orange zest. Juicy, balanced and elegant, good musculature, integrated wood spice, fine sweetness on the finish, for now only medium length, will accentuate in the bottle.

Peter Moser - March 14, 2019.

 

Wine Enthusiast : 96

The wine is ripe, yet elegant and pure. It presents a great balance between lively acidity and rich fruitiness. It is a very fine wine with great aging potential, because it portends a more opulent future.

Roger Voss - January 4, 2016
