Château Coutet Barsac, 2009
95 points
Very lightly toasty, this is more floral for now, with lively honey-suckle and pineapple notes up front, giving way to richer hints of warm brioche, fig, glazed pear and lemon shortbread that should emerge more with time. The long, lacy finish has the poise and balance for long term cellaring. Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. Best from 2014 through 2034. From France.
