Château Coutet, Barsac 1981

Shaw Ross International Importers, Miami FL.

Forty years on.

From split.

Gold. Sleek and rather digital for a wine this age. Plenty of noble rot in ’81. It shows its fruit on a high white wire, with a savory undertow for subtext. Lots there still – zippy yet substantive. It reverberates with fine Barsac content as it closes. Now.
