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

Although most commonly associated with their superb blended red wines, the world-famous region of Bordeaux in France is responsible for a relatively wide array of wines, ranging from the sweet and viscous white wines of Sauternes, to the dry and acidic single variety white wines found all over the region. However, it is the red wines which regularly make the wine world's headlines, and have historically been regarded as the finest on earth. The secret to the region's success is the fact that the warm and humid climate, coupled with mineral rich clay and gravel based soils produces grapes of excellent quality. Wineries in this region have spent hundreds of years mastering the art of blending and oak aging in order to get the best results from each grape, and remain the envy of the world to this day.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
