Light botrytis, lots of apricot and some burnt sugar. The nose is better than the palate, which has an initial burst of flavour followed by watered down flavour intensity on the mid-palate and a startlingly short finish. I finished my glass quickly, but others noted that the nose fell over pretty soon after pouring.

(Chateau Coutet Barsac) Tasted alongside Chateau Rieussec 1981. A moderate colour. Sweet, racy, some botrytis on the nose. Very impressive palate for a lesser vintage; Lovely honey, quince, pineapple and citrus elements to be found, with firm acidity. Very good.
