Château Coutet 2018

  • Further details
  • Philippe Baly, his brother Dominique and his niece Aline are the dedicated and successful trio in charge of this Barsac Premier Cru. The second and third generations are working together to return the Coutet terroir to its past glory, while simultaneously giving the property the benefit of modern technical mastery.

    Starting from the premise that "a healthy vine is less susceptible to illness", Philippe Baly has instituted an agricultural regime at the property that means it is now 95% organic. Unfortunately, his vines were unable to withstand a severe attack of mildew and he lost 90% of the harvest... "We were novices," he confesses. "We won't make the same mistakes again" - largely thanks to stricter rules, treatments applied in quicker succession and the resolve to keep a more careful eye on the weather forecast.

    A particularly botrytized harvest demanded a rigorous selection process and made blending an extremely complex operation. But Philippe has pulled off an impressive feat: "It's an extremely pleasant vintage," one that has managed to retain its freshness, he says.
