Lunch on Saturday with friends at home. No detailed notes but there was Apricot in amongst the candied fruits. Barb said it was not as sweet as she was expecting. Drinking at its peak - no further cellaring required. Went well with fresh strawberries and ice cream.

This is the second time in several years that I have enjoyed this wine. The bottle that I enjoyed at Château Coutet with their winemaker showed quite a bit better than the first bottle that I purchased at auction. The ’89 Coutet nose is quite evolved with a bit of oxidation. Honey and ripe pineapple with apricot aromas come together with nutmeg accents. The palate shows really good richness and intensity which makes it difficult to believe this wine is thirty years old, Apricot marmalade, ripe pineapple, creme brûlée and butterscotch flavors come together in the glass with wild mushroom undertones. Showing serious range and intensity, this gorgeous wine has a minute long finish that completes the package. Drink 2019-2035- 96

What a treat this was while I was in wine school. One of the best wines I've ever had. I have a sweet tooth!
