95 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown: "The 2015 Coutet is pale lemon colored with intense grapefruit, lemon pie and pineapple notes with touches of crushed rocks, honeycomb and lime zest plus a waft of orange blossoms. Rich, opulent and layered with loads of tropical and citrus notes, it has wonderful freshness, finishing long." 8/18
94 points Neal Martin: "The 2015 Coutet was much more backward and reticent than its peers despite coaxing. Conversely, the palate is just singing with very concentrated, unctuous honeyed fruit and a superb line of acidity. It fills the mouth with luscious Barsac. It is just the aromatics that seem to be saying you will have to wait several years... Anticipated maturity: 2022 - 2055." (02/2018)
90-93 Points, Vinous: "The 2015 Coutet is nicely lifted, gracious and understated. Candied apple, Jolly Rancher and exotic flowers are all nicely balanced in this attractive, mid-weight Sauternes. This is a very pretty Barsac built on aromatic nuance and bright, salivating acidity."
94 Points, James Suckling: "Conentrated, creamy and elegant, this is a beautiful Barsac with delicate exotic-fruit character and a very long, rather oily finish. You could drink it now, but it will gain a lot from extended ageing." 2/18
95 Points, Wine Spectator: "Flattering, with a mix of pineapple, peach, pear and yellow apple flavors that give this both treble and bass. Gilded with heather and lemon curd on the finish, with a flash of piecrust that should blossom as this matures. Best from 2020 through 2040."
95-97 Points, Wine Enthusiast: "The wine is ripe yet stylish and pure. It has a great balance between bright acidity and rich fruitiness. It is a very fine wine with great aging potential, as it hints at the more opulent future to come."
96 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, www.jebdunnuck.com: "A heavenly dessert wine, the 2015 ChÃ¢teau Coutet boasts a huge nose of caramelized citrus, crÃ¨me brÃ»lÃ©e, tangerine, and honeysuckle. With huge richness and sweetness, moderate acidity, a thick, fat mouthfeel and a blockbuster finish, it's borderline over the top yet holds it together. It will be interesting to see how this evolves, but it's undeniably gorgeous today. " 11/17
