Coutet 1999 0,75
Robert Parker 90-92P
A very pretty color of coppery gold with amber glints, the wine's nose is rather expressive, full of finesse, mixing notes of stone fruits (apricot, cherry plum) and very ripe exotic fruits with more discreet notes of vanilla and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). On the palate, one finds the elegance and subtleness of a vintage that over the years has retained its freshness and a pleasant aromatic character, oscillating between the persistence of candied citrus fruits, mandarin liqueur, and the tastiness of a beautiful minerality.
A classic example of elegance allied to richness and intensity, Coutet's 1997 exhibits an expressive, floral, citrusy, honeyed nose, with notes of orange, Chinese black tea, pineapple, and spicy oak. It is all finesse, with honey, medium to full body, gorgeous delineation, and refreshing underlying acidity. It should drink well young.
