It is the poise the elegance of Coutet that shows so well in this delicious wine. It is ripe with layers of apricot and peach lifted with spice and an over-arching sweet acidity that gives the wine a wonderful heart-stopping lift.

Almost as excellent as the 2003. There's intense botrytis spice on the nose with lemon peel and dried pineapple. Full-bodied superspicy and intense. Extremely racy. A beautiful wine. Best after 2014. -JS

Light to medium gold with a greenish hue this wine exhibits wonderfully pure notes of wood spice such as vanillin honeyed citrus a hint of under-ripe peach and touches of creme brulee and marmalade. With great acidity and finesse this is a medium-bodied impressively endowed but generally very racy restrained style of wine that should age beautifully for 25 or more years. It is not the sweetest and by no means the biggest wine of 2006 but it has nobility tattooed all over it. -Robert Parker

Racy aromas of pineapple fresh peach rose water parsley and marzipan with enticing floral lift; lovely fresh botrytis character here. Suave and fine-grained; wonderfully light on its feet for such a smooth even opulent wine. A subtle restrained example with nicely integrated acidity and very good finishing grip. Very Barsac in style: approachable young like almost all of these 2006s but with the balance to gain with bottle aging.

Fairly heavy and sweet on the palate with the hazelnut dominating the front. Lighter fresh fruit notes of pear and guava come through on the mid-palate with a fairly clean finish.
