The origins of a Coutet vineyard lie in 1643. Thomas Jefferson was a fan of the wine during his time as ambassador to France, calling Coutet "the best Sauternes of Barsac". In 1977 Coutet became the property of the Baly family from Alsace and in 1994 the owners signed a partnership deal with the Baron Philippe de Rothschild Company.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

Really aromatic Coutet, showing scents of oats and camomile and nuts and lemons and lime leaves. Gingery and clean nose, almost aseptic. Very spicy and showing its oak. The palate is straight and structured, very long and with a beautiful aftertaste. Excellent Coutet.

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
