96 points James Suckling
"A triumph for the vintage with spices, dried mushroom, dried pineapple, peaches and honey. Full and sweet with bright acidity and a long, intense finish. Powerful wine. This could be the best Coutet ever. Better in 2015."
96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Pale to medium gold colored, the 2009 Coutet leaps from the glass with warm apple pie, dried mango, fresh straw, lemongrass, ginger and crème caramel notes. The rich, concentrated, unctuous flavors are lifted by amazing freshness, finishing epically long, layered and with a tantalizing nuttiness."
95 points Wine Spectator
"Very lightly toasty, this is more floral for now, with lively honeysuckle and pineapple notes up front, giving way to richer hints of warm brioche, fig, glazed pear and lemon shortbread that should emerge more iwht time. The long, lacy finish has the poise and balance for long-term cellaring. Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle, Best from 2014 through 2034. 5000 cases made."
"Tasted blind. Deep gold. Very big and massive and yet fresh, with enormous weight but tension too. Almost hot! Dense. 18/20 points."
