Chateau Coutet 2015 has opened this year’s campaign for Sauternes. It has been released at €26.4 per bottle ex-negociant. This is down 12% on the 2005 release (€30 p/b) and up 10% on 2014 (€24 p/b). The wine is being offered by the international trade at £285 per 12×75, making it more expensive than several vintages already in the market.
Still, it has received relatively strong scores from critics: James Molesworth called it “very long, boasting terrific range (94-97)”. Other Coutet vintages with scores at this level are currently commanding prices of £360-380.
