Pale yellow-gold. Superripe, nuanced nose combines peach, apricot, honey and a suggestion of tropical fruits. Silky, suave and opulent; very concentrated and spicy.

Silky, suave and opulent; very concentrated and spicy. This very rich Sauternes carries its 130 g/l r.s. quite gracefully, thanks to firm acids. Finishes very long, with spice and honey notes. Impeccably balanced wine with terrific material.

The Rieussec ’98 has a crisp, energetic bouquet with scents of yellow plum, wild honey and a touch of vanilla. There is ample botrytis on the viscous entry with touches of pear, honey, marzipan and vanilla pod. It is still showing a little too much oak towards the finish, although it offers fine delineation and impressive weight. Personally, I would afford this Sauternes another four or five years in bottle. Drink 2016-2030.

Medium dark gold color. Aromas of cooked apple and lemon follow through to a full body, with lots of spice, salty nut and clove character. Big and dense, with lots going on. Oily. Drink now. 6,250 cases made. –JS
