Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Coutet Sauternes Barsac 1998

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The ’98 Coutet has a slightly lighter colour than the ’01. It has a typical Barsac bouquet that is fresh and well defined with aromas of pear, dried apricot, mango and a faint adhesive aroma that is actually quite attractive. The palate is medium-bodied with an attractive viscous entry, notes of spice, ginger, a touch of lemon curd, dried lemon and Seville orange marmalade. It shows a little more harmony than the ’01 at this stage, very good length. Excellent. Drink now-2025+

Additional Information on Chateau Coutet Sauternes Barsac 1998

Winery: Chateau Coutet

Region: Bordeaux

Of all the wine regions in France, the mostly highly esteemed and famous is surely Bordeaux. Most commonly associated with their superb examples of blended red wines, usually made with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot varietals, Bordeaux consistently demonstrates that their mix of traditional and modern wine-making styles is the recipe for fame and success. The region benefits greatly from its humid climate, and the fact that its clay and gravel based soils are perfect for growing the fine grape varietals which flourish there. The region is split into quite distinct sub-regions, with the finest generally believed to be the Left Bank and the Médoc region, where many of the most well known chateaux are based and produce their wonderful red and white wines.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
