A blend of 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, & 2% Muscadelle. Golden with complex aromas, somewhat Riesling like, and adding a tropical bouquet. On the palate this botrytis rich wine shows apple, pineapple and honeysuckle flavors. Lingering finish ending with smoky vanilla notes. Was lucky enough to get a taste of this beauty. Will contine to age in the bottle. Tasting Sample. — 22 days ago

The old '89 Chateau Coutet Barsac. Golden amber and just perfect. — 4 years ago
Wednesday Wine Committee. Great hosting by Gavin. 1 sparkler, 4 whites, 4 reds and 2 dessert wines. All served blind as usual.
Such a treat. This was absolutely wonderful and has so much fruit and life to it! It is extremely honeyed...not much roasted nuts to this at its age, but the honey is still there and seems to be only getting stronger. Honeyed covered mangos, dried apricot, and orange marmalade. I called this early ‘80s Sauternes. — 17 days ago

Smooth, complex red tried in South Bend — a month ago
Nose has ridiculous over-ripe apricot, almond oil, marzipan, meringue cookie and cold butter.
Palate has warmed apricot pie with extra flakey, buttery crust, sweet sand, white flower honey and green mango.
Just delicious, would pair well with an English, firm 🐄 cheese.
Great finish for Father's Day (2019). — 6 months ago
