2006 Chateau Rieussec - 92.33pts

2006 Chateau Rieussec (Sauternes) Bordeaux - France

Decanted: 2hrs

Cost: $59.00-$79.90 - 375ml

Date Tasted: September 13th, 2009

Tasting Notes: Excellent example of the complexity of flavours that can be hidden within a full-bodied sweet wine. Light gold in colour with a whole slew of fruit flavours on the nose and palate: apricot, candied-apple, peach, honeyed lemon. Add a touch of rosted-almonds and mineral notes and you have a very complex and satisfying 1er Cru Classé wine. Should develop nicely over the next decade.

Scores: 91 ST, 93 WS, 93 IW, Average = 92.33
