Château Coutet 1er Cru Barsac – 18.5

MB/TD: Immensly rich botrytis, great length, wonderful style; still developing its personality, but very, very promising. 18

MS: Immense, fresh, vivid, and minerally to smell; lovely balance, intensly sweet and with a fine, fresh acidity, concentrated in flavor, yet remaining delicate all the time, with classic Coutet finesse; refined, and racy, with beautiful definition, and excellent length of both fruit and aroma on the finish. A very fine Coutet, in a classic Barsac mold. 18.5
