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 (Nov 2019)

*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.

Greenish gold. Rather light, leafy nose - not one of the most impressive. Sweet start. Burnt edge. Quite neat and very long. Not bad at all but just overwhelmed by some more complex and more obviously sweet wines. 2006-2015 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com

Nose: very scented, unctuous fruit, apricots and freshness. Taste: wonderfully long flavour and glorious freshness of fruit in perfect harmony with the sugar, very silky texture and great breed.www.decanter.com
