Half Bottle Chateau Rieussec - Sauternes 2009


This is a delightful Sauternes, fresh as a daisy and wonderfully complex. It's a blend of Semillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle which make a stunning dessert wine. Moderate gold in colour with plenty of creamy apple fruit backed by notes of almond, pears and scents of blossom. The aftertaste is long and lingering where the complexity really comes out. It is also surprisingly fresh and it makes a wonderful accompaniment to creamy desserts.
