92 out of 100
by Neil Martin
"The 2012 has a lifted bouquet of quince, marmalade and yellow flowers that is precise and focused. The palate is viscous and convincing on the opening, offering good depth and cohesion with satisfactory botrytis, though it tails away ever so slightly on the finish. Still, this is a commendable effort and is another fine 2012 Barsac.
Nobody promotes their estate more than the dynamic Aline Baly, and good for her – Coutet has been on a roll recently." - Neil Martin, Wine Advocate
