Château Coutet 1er Cru Barsac 2018: A Liquid Jewel from Bordeaux

Nestled in the heart of Barsac, Château Coutet boasts a prestigious status as a Premier Cru Classé producer. Their 2018 vintage of Barsac is a testament to their dedication to crafting exceptional sweet white wines. This alluring Sauternes offers a captivating drinking experience, brimming with concentrated fruit flavours and a touch of luxurious honeyed richness.

On the Nose

The first breath entices with an intense bouquet, a symphony of aromas that unfolds gradually. Ripe citrus notes of marmalade and clementine mingle with tropical hints of mango and passion fruit. A delicate floral whisper of apple blossom adds a touch of elegance, while underlying honeyed nuances complete this captivating perfume.

On the Palate

The palate lives up to the promise of the nose, delivering a luscious and well-balanced sweetness. The concentrated fruit flavours coat the tongue, offering flavours of apricot, peach, and quince. A vibrant acidity cuts through the sweetness, ensuring a refreshing and lively character. Hints of honey and butterscotch emerge on the mid-palate, adding complexity and depth. The finish is long and lingering, leaving behind a lasting impression of ripe fruit and honeyed richness.

Food Pairing

Château Coutet 1er Cru Barsac 2018 is a versatile food pairing wine, capable of elevating a variety of dishes. Its natural sweetness makes it a perfect partner for desserts, but it can also shine alongside savoury options. Here are some delectable food pairings to explore:

  • Desserts: This Sauternes is a match made in heaven for a wide range of desserts. Pair it with classic pairings like crème brûlée, tarte tatin, or fruit-based crumbles. Its richness complements blue cheeses like Roquefort or Stilton, creating a delightful contrast of sweet and savoury.
  • Foie Gras: The luxurious texture and richness of foie gras find a perfect partner in the sweetness and acidity of Château Coutet. A touch of Sauternes poured over foie gras adds another dimension of flavour and decadence.
  • Spicy Dishes: Sweet wines can act as a wonderful counterpoint to spicy dishes. The sweetness of the Sauternes helps to tame the heat of curries, Thai food, or Szechuan cuisine.
