Come On Aline: Château Coutet 1943-2017 (Feb 2024)

The 1996 Coutet has an elegant bouquet with refined honeysuckle, orange blossom and apricot scents, certainly delivering more presence and intensity than the previous vintage. The palate is well balanced with good vigor and fine concentration with tangy marmalade, quince and mango notes, fanning out with a degree of confidence on the finish. This is the best Coutet of the Nineties. Tasted from an ex-château bottle served at the estate.
