96Wine Spectator

Shows the vivid, racy side of Barsac, with streaming flavors of pineapple, yellow apple, green plum and white ginger, displaying lovely energy from start to finish. Ends with honeysuckle and orange blossom notes to balance the richness.

93-95The Wine Advocate

There is a great thrust of rich botrytized fruit sliced through with Coutet’s trademark acidity...that lends this such vibrancy and tension. It possesses and almost clinical precision with long persistence on the finish.

90-93Vinous / IWC

...overall balance that is most impressive. Attractive scents of pear, white flowers and pastry convey and impression of finesse.

17.5Jancis Robinson

Honeyed and fragrant with apricot and citrus. Fantastically rich and viscous on the mid palate and has impressive length.


France, Bordeaux, Sauternes, Barsac

Sauternes makes the world’s most famous dessert wines. Though the appellation lies within the Graves region of Bordeaux’s left bank, the appellation makes only sweet wines from white grapes, primarily Semillon sometimes blended with small amounts of Muscadelle. The five communes within Sauternes are Barsac, Bommes, Fargues, Preignac and Sauternes. Barsac also has its own appellation and, typically, Barsac wines are slightly drier and lighter than other Sauternes. Sauternes are made when weather conditions result in a mold called Botrytis cinerea developing on the grapes, which causes them to become especially sweet. Sauternes are not produced every vintage, so successful vintages become especially collectible. Sauternes estates were classified in 1855, and Château d’Yquem, the appellation’s most prestigious estate, was ranked in a class by itself as a Premier Grand Cru. Château d’Yquem wines are among the most prized wines in the world.
