Very pale gold, delicate colour. Very pure nose, very rich and sweet, very fine focus and linear drive, lovely tangy citrus to liven it up, and very long and clinging. L&S (Mar 2005)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

The 2003 Coutet is pale to medium gold colored and leaps from the glass with vivacious notes of baked peaches, key lime pie and candied orange peel with hints of lime leaves, praline and lemon curd. The rich, expressive palate is laden with spicy layers, framed by lively acid and finishing on a crème caramel note. Drinking range: 2018 - 2028 Rating: 91 Lisa Perrotti-Brown, (Aug 2018)
