Case Size: 1 x 0.75. The intense color of dress is adorned with pure and brilliant gold. The nose reveals honeyed aromas of apricots, melon and bitter oranges that blend subtly with the flavors of biscuits, quince paste and angelica. The delicacy is omnipresent. In the mouth the wine is rich and voluptuous. His balance is perfect; a nice acidity brings freshness, charm and nobility. A generous bouquet reveals notes of fresh almond, cinnamon, acacia honey and barley sugar. The length is amazing. The finish, opulent, leaves a feeling of fullness. Superb Cuvée Madame, which over time, can never disappoint.

    THE STORY: An English fortress built in the 13th Century, this citadel with its square tower, a design typical of the era’s military constructions, became a wine producing estate in 1643. Previously owned by the Lur-Saluces family, the property was home to Chateau d’Yquem’s horse stables, transformed in the late 19th Century into a 110-meter long cellar (the longest in the appellation). A second round tower in the property’s northern plot, a Château Coutet landmark, was built originally to breed pigeons and peacocks for the region’s Gascon lords. Vertical wine presses from the 1920s, a 14th Century chapel and a Bordeaux cobblestone courtyard are a testament to the estate’s rich architectural and regional history. Thomas Jefferson celebrated Chateau Coutet as the best Sauternes from Barsac during his ambassadorship to France. In 1855, recognized for its continued excellence, the estate was classified as a first growth. Today, Chateau Coutet stays true to its tradition of distinction and quality by producing the finest Barsac year after year. With an average age of 35 years, the vines of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle have developed a network of deep roots to extract elements from the limestone and clay-based terroir, giving the grapes freshness, richness and strength. For this reason, the wine carries the name "Coutet," derived from the Gascon's word for knife, to signify the fresh, lively and crisp palate taht is the estate's signature style.
