The '98 Coutet has a slightly lighter colour than the '01. It has a typical Barsac bouquet that is fresh and well defined with aromas of pear dried apricot mango and a faint adhesive aroma that is actually quite attractive. The palate is medium-bodied with an attractive viscous entry notes of spice ginger a touch of lemon curd dried lemon and Seville orange marmalade. It shows a little more harmony than the '01 at this stage very good length. Excellent. Drink now-2025+ Tasted April 2010.
