Jean-Marc Quarin ~ 93 Points

"Very supple, meticulous, the wine develops aromatic, strong and spicy, toward a subtly liquoreuse finish. Amazingly aromatic persistence. The balance is in favor of sweetness. Very good."

2005 VINTAGE

93 Yellow-green color. Nose of average intensity, smelling of very ripe, slightly stewed fruit, and vanilla. Superb entry with a delicate touch evoking a top-of-the-line Semillon. Very supple, meticulous, the wine develops aromatic, strong and spicy, toward a subtly liquoreuse finish. Amazingly aromatic persistence. The balance is in favor of sweetness. Very good. Wait until 2010 and before 2040.
19 Hint of bronze, blossomy on the nose. Very full and intense and has absolutely MASSES of weight. Unmissable. You could slice this in two. Most impressive. This should live for almost ever. Very neat finish. Acidity well hidden.
The wine has all the Coutet virtues of scent, delicacy and freshness on the nose. The flavour has more weight than one expects, with fine vinosity and elegance. Very near to being five stars at this point, opulent and smooth.
94

Surprisingly dry, this has richness rather than sweetness, and intense, powerful botrytis. The honey is intensely perfumed, along with baked apples and spice. Certainly a long-aging wine.— (6/1/2008)

91 Spice, dried pineapple, honey and light apricot aromas, like freshly crushed grapes. Full-bodied and very sweet, with masses of crushed fruit character and a long finish. Best after 2010. 4,165 cases made. –JS
