    (Chateau Coutet Barsac) From a half bottle. The first of a large consignment recently added to the cellar; I will be drinking this for years! Mid-gold hue on inspection. The nose has elements of marmalade, bitter oranges, apricot and certainly the richness of botrytis. Fabulously rich, honeyed, impressive, full and broad and densely sweet and compact. Still quite primary but with deep fruit complexity, with notes of almonds. This will drink well for a very long time, but I think I will leave it for a few years before I open another. Very long.
