Tasting Notes

Score: 92+Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (176), May 2008

Intense aromas of honey, spice and candied lemons. Full-bodied, very sweet and dense, with a syrupy mouthfeel and a long finish. This is very concentrated. Almost classic quality.

Score: 92/94James Suckling,, March 2006

Tasted blind. Very broad and ample on the nose. Rich and burnished. Savoury and exciting. Not that sweet. Going its own way… Very long.
Drink 2018-2034

Score: 16.5Jancis Robinson MW,, March 2017

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. Drink 2018–35

Score: 19Jancis Robinson MW,, April 2006

Full yellow. Orange peel, peach nectar and spicy oak on the nose. Sweet, suave and moderately glyceral, with seamless, complex flavors of peach, lime, coconut and vanilla. Wonderfully fat and sweet but with a vibrant core. This seems much younger than the 2004, and offers excellent potential.

Score: 91/94Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, December 2007

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. 4 stars
