In 1787, former U.S. President Thomas Jefferson, then ambassador to France, celebrated Château Coutet (pronounced Cootay or COU-tett) as the best Sauternes from Barsac. In 1855, the estate was classified as a First Growth and recognized for its continued excellence. Today, as the oldest and largest Barsac estate, Château Coutet stays true to its tradition of distinction and quality.

Mid copper. Serious botrytised wine on the nose with satisfyingly savoury notes. Rich and nuanced with extremely lively acidity and good length. Grownup wine. Long. A bit toasty. - JancisRobinson.com
