93-95 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Coutet has super intense, well-delineated notions of warm pineapple, green guava and baked pineapple with hints of mandarin peel, gingerbread, orange blossoms and lime leaves. The palate is alive with energetic tropical fruit and exotic spice notes with a lovely satiny texture and fantastic freshness, finishing with epic length." 4/19
94 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2018 Coutet has a very intense bouquet with marmalade, clementines, mango and light apple blossom scents, all delivered with exceptional precision and delineation. The palate is vibrant and tensile on the opening thanks to a killer line of acidity that slices through the viscous fruit. There is so much tangible energy in this Coutet. This comes highly recommended." 03/21
91-92 Points, James Suckling: "Pleasant center palate to this young Barsac. Medium-bodied and very sweet, but lacks a bit of botrytis for me." 4/19
93 Points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "This has an exotic display of fresh pineapple, mandarin orange, yellow apple, lemon peel and star fruit flavors that are rich in feel yet precise and racy as they move through a finish gilded with honeysuckle and orange blossom notes. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now through 2024. 155 cases made." 03/21
95-97 Points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast: "This wine's ripeness is intense, just hinting at an impressive future. The dry core of botrytis balances the honey and the spice, along with fresh lemon curd. This is likely to be a very fine wine." 4/19
94 Points, Jane Ansen, Decanter: "Deep in colour, with strong peach and apricot pit flavours, and welcome touches of almond bitterness on the finish that help things to lift off and take flight, because overall things are extremely concentrated here. 50% new oak was used. A yield of just 3hl/ha. Tasted twice." 11/20
