2009 Cuvee Madame, 2009, Coutet, 6x750ml
The 2009 Cuvee Madame, composed of 100% Sémillon, is pale lemon-gold in color with a beguiling fragrance of peach blossoms, mandarin peel, jasmine and allspice with core of pineapple, lemon pie, peach preserves and ginger plus a waft of musk perfume. Very big, powerful and seductive with decadent richness and loads of spice and floral layers accenting the ripe stone fruit flavors, it finishes with epic persistence. 2018-2058

This remarkable Barsac has a production of approximately 1200 bottles.
The origin of Cuvée Madame goes back to Madame Rolland-Guy, owner of Château COUTET between 1922 and 1977. The vineyard workers were in the habit of working without pay for one day while picking the remaining grapes from one of the property’s two oldest parcels, whose berries were super-concentrated. A sweet wine of incomparable richness and flavor was thus obtained. This very small and exceptional cuvée was dedicated to Madame, the proprietor’s wife. The Baly family carries on this tradition for their finest harvests. The superb Cuvée Madame was made in 1981, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1995, 1997, 2001, 2003 following the memorable 1943, 1947, 1959, 1971 and 1975 vintages. The Cuvée Madame originates from the property’s two oldest parcels of Sémillon. The average age of the vines on these plots is 55 years.
