A very expressive and rich Rieussec with complex sweet apple, lemon, lime and grapefruit aromas. There is wonderful purity of attractive, ripe stone fruit on the palate with honeyed notes and a hint of exotic spice in the background balanced by a zesty, green apple acidity which gives wonderful freshness. Very elegant and refined. Drink 2n/a18 - 2n/a35.
Reviews & Scores
This is a fabulous Sauternes with dried peaches, pineapples and mango. Apricots and hints of spices. Even jam. Full-bodied, medium sweet with intense and powerful palate. This wine has 147 grams of residual sugar. So balanced and long. We will see what is better -- Rieussec or Yquem?
