As I sit at my desk writing about an entirely different wine, this seductress is unfurling before me, and I can fully appreciate its aromatic charms from a distance of several inches. Dried apricot, star anise and clove, and creme brûlée round out the nose of this opulent Sauternes. On the palate, it's unctuous and yet finely corseted in vibrant acidity and minerality. Every bit as good as the 1986 I tasted recently. All this requires is time, sweet time. Merveilleux!

As I sit at my desk writing about an entirely different wine, this seductress is unfurling before me, and I can fully appreciate its aromatic charms from a distance of several inches. Dried apricot, yellow peaches, star anise, clove, and creme brûlée round out the nose of this opulent Sauternes. On the palate, it's unctuous and yet finely corseted in vibrant acidity and minerality. Every bit as good as the 1986 I tasted recently. Like Sleeping Beauty, all it requires is time. Of note, Château Rieussec is a blend of 90 to 95% Sémillon, 5 to 10% Muscadelle and Sauvignon blanc and is aged for 18 to 26 months on oak, of which around 50% is new French oak. 14.0% ABV

Nice, honeycomb, bit of peach and almond, easy drink. Not sure if it will evolve into one of the greatest

I don't have a lot of experience with Sauternes or sweet wine but you don't need much to taste the elegance and beauty of this great wine.

Still young but with lots or promise with aging. Tasting hints of honey and lots of tangerine. Wonderful with a dessert containing blue cheese
