Coutet, Château
Bordeaux, France
Remarkably clear and youthful yellow-golden color, barely passing into amber territory. Super fresh lemon Pledge nose, insanely floral, then minerally and waxy, the fruit mainly dried apricots and peaches, it all breezes away quickly. Light-bodied, the acidity is fluid and not drying at all. Here it's more honeyed, the dried fruit character found in the apricot, pineapple, pear clearly obvious. Buttressed by mint and orange marmalade. Brings a bright floral swirl at the end with notes of lemon square cookies. Nice in a lighthearted, gregarious manner. 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Muscadelle. 3.0 liter bottle.
