Château Rieussec Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2006

Ratings on Delectable

Dr. Owen Bargreen Delectable Pro

Initially reticent and needing 30 minutes of air to fully express itself aromatically, the 2006 Chateau Rieussec opens with a lighter bouquet of butterscotch, buttered popcorn, mango and ginger undertones. The palate shows really good freshness and intensity with a good sense of minerality. Pineapple creme brulee, poached pear, bananas foster and nutmeg flavors complete this beautiful wine. The exceedingly long, finish lingers and rounds out this complete wine. What this doesn’t possess on the nose, exceeds expectations on the palate and finish, as this elegant wine is one of the great wines of this vintage. Enjoy this wonderful wine over the next two decades. Drink 2020-2035- 94

Caramel, honey, sweet fruits, bit of acid to make it a very nice sauterne

A good rep of the rich, full bodied golden treasure for Bordeaux justifying why the top wine in 1855 was a Sauternes!

Sensational. Perfect balance. Nutty almond, ripe apricots. Good acid and beautiful finish.

Something a little amiss here. VA and alcohol on the nose. A bit astringent and out of sorts.
