Château Rieussec Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1986

The 1986 is a complex and elegant wine, with plenty of smoky almonds, peaches, and honeyed apricot fruit in the nose and flavors. In the mouth, the wine has a certain elegance, and perhaps not quite the punch one normally expects from Rieussec. Nevertheless, it is a compelling Sauternes that should age magnificently...

Orange marmalade, spice, beautiful acidity still.

Golden hue. Creamsicle jumps out of the glass with hints of vanilla bean. Orange peel and tangerine emerge on the palate. Good viscosity but not as flashy as the others tonight.
