Winemakers Note

First built as a fortress, Château Coutet still bears the stamp of its medieval origins. The square tower with its battlements, located in the centre of the courtyard, is typical of military constructions of the time. Château Coutet was recognised as a Classified First Growth in the 1855 classification, but the lands around Barsac, among the coldest in the area, had already been planted with vines for centuries. Marcel Baly and two of his sons, Philippe and Dominique, became the new owners of Château Coutet in 1977. Originally from Alsace, the family subsequently expanded overseas, especially in the United States. With zeal and determination, they set about the task of renewing the vineyard and the winery buildings. Today, Aline Baly is the third generation to join the family business. In 1994, the two brothers concluded an agreement with Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA. The winemaking team is now advised by the technical staff from Château Mouton Rothschild. Key Points - Family owned - The wine bears the name of "Coutet" derived from the Gascon "knife" which evokes sharpness, liveliness, freshness and nervousness, a unique style. - In 1987, Thomas Jefferson, future president of the United States considered that Coutet was the best Sauterne of Barsac - Well-rated and good quality wines Fermentation In barrels Ageing 18 months in 100% French oak barrels Tasting Notes This is an extremely delicate vintage. The first tastings reveal a particularly fresh wine, marked by floral notes of lily of the valley and grapefruit flowers. The liveliness on the palate is typical of our Barsac terroir
