2001 Château Coutet, Cru Classé Barsac

2001 was a tremendous year for the great sweet wines of Bordeaux, probably the best in the last decade and Coutet excelled itself. Rich, luscious and opulent, with appealing tropical notes on the nose that carry through onto the palate, where they are joined by the beautiful complexity that comes from botrytised fruit. Perfectly balanced, with an elegant and refreshing acidity that carries through onto a sensational finish.
