1989 Coutet, Barsac

SKU #998636 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Ex-cellar bottle served at Chateau Coutet. The ’89 Coutet is clear with a bright amber hue. The bouquet does not quite have the definition of either the ’98 or ’01 tasted alongside, with notes of dried mango, apricot, quince and a touch of cooking apple. The palate is vibrant and full of energy, displays superb balance and delineation: dried pineapple, mango, a dash of ginger and a saline tang right on the finish. One has to admire the harmony and the precision of this ’89 that should age gracefully over the next 20 years. Drink now-2030. Tasted April 2010. (NM-Wine Journal)  (11/2010)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Gold-edged straw color. Liqueur-like aromas of honey, white chocolate, white raisin, creme caramel and vanilla bean. Big, rich, sweet and unformed, but quite concentrated and nicely balanced. Sound underlying acidity gives the wine good backbone and keeps it reasonably fresh. Finishes with a flavor of golden raisin. 92(+?) points.  (7/1998)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Lush and viscous, very sweet, showing ripe tropical fruit and lemon flavors and a burning sensation on the finish that reflects good concentration.  (4/1995)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
