A wonderful example of Barsac. High notes of jasmine, honeysuckle, and pineapple syrup. On the palate these were harmonized with pleasantly burnt honey and candied apple. Very pure aromas and flavors, great structure. A delight with everything from chèvre to green tea choux cream to lemon chiffonade (yes, I tried them all)!

Clean and sweet with a crisp finish. Nice but indistinctive.

Good but not excellent, intense, good acidity and good sweetness. But aftertaste too short and surprisingly bitter. Tasted better on second-third day. I like Coutet but this vintage is not their best for me.

Really ripen papaya, passion fruit. Just how I imagined heaven without consequences and insulin shots. Beauty.

Straya Day vino.

Fresh. Ume, peach, apricot, preserved orange peel, white flowers, and vanilla on the nose. Indian spices as it opens up. Carries over to the palate. Honey. Interesting peppery notes too. Long finish.

Delicious concentrated Sauternes. 2001's a good year I hear. Still needs time - long life ahead. My only issue is the acid. I feel it needs a tad bit more to balance out the sweetness.

Not too cloying, perfectly savory and sweet.
