Chateau Coutet 2015

 Really wonderful Friday treat at work yesterday. This 2015 from a colleague’s recent trip to Bordeaux. 5% of @chateau.coutet is malbec, which is at the higher end of the scale for Right Bank wines.  I’ve not had vast quantities of Bordeaux. A mixture of price and 100-point chasing means I’ve not explored it properly yet. But this was a great wine to see what is there.  Blackcurrant, herbs, and warming black pepper balloon from the glass, and to my great delight it’s got a fine balance on the palate too. Perhaps there’s something to this Bordeaux thing after all…
