Chateau Rieussec 1er Cru Classe Sauternes - Half Bottle 2011


What a superb wine! A true masterpiece. The intense burnished gold colour is so attractive and the intense yet fresh floral bouquet, most noticeably of honeysuckle, is so appealing, the whole wine is truly amazing. Generous on the palate with a superb balancing acidity which gives an exceptional freshness to the wine, the residual sugar allows it to linger on the palate whilst never becoming cloying. An exceptional Sauternes that should last two or three decades.
