The 2015 Coutet comes with 153 grams per liter of residual sugar at 13.8% alcohol. It has a fragrant bouquet with acacia honey, citrus scents and a touch of melted butter, all very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive purity, those limestone soils imparting the acidity that defined this Barsac, and lending great precision and tension on the live-wire finish. This is a wonderful Coutet that feels energetic - a compressed spring coil that will drink earlier than the likes of Climens or de Fargues, but has the DNA to age gracefully over 25-30 years.

A Coutet with great depth and fruit. So much dried tropical fruit character, bright acidity and fruit sweetness. Vivid and clean. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Vibrant, with a singed almond frame sprinting along, this offers nectarine, white peach and star fruit notes. Mirabelle plum and pineapple details echo through the finish. Very long, boasting terrific range. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Looks very substantial in the glass. Floral nose. Massive weight. This tastes very ripe indeed and with considerable botrytis influence. Quite a dramatic statement! Though the finish is surprisingly dry and appetising. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2028-2050

Very rich, deep aromas of lemon verbena, peach, cinnamon; enticing. Rich, dense and suave palate, with a honeyed richness to the spicy, fresh citrus and apple jelly flavours. A large-scaled Coutet showcasing a hint of passerillage (dried grapes). Outstanding, but I prefer the 2014. Apr 2016, Ian D'Agata, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2020-2035

Showing the elegance and lightness of touch that is the hallmark of this château’s sweet wines, this is refreshing yet effortlessly concentrated, with white flowers and peaches on the nose, subtle cinnamon oak, plenty of mid-palate weight and tangy acidity. Just as impressive as the 2014. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2019-2030
