Rich rather than sweet this is stuffed full of botrytis. The wine is powered through with this dusty texture rolling richly but catching the dried fruit character

Tasted single blind against its peers. The Chateau Rieussec 2008 should become an excellent Sauternes for the vintage. It has a floral bouquet with peach tinned apricot and a touch of marmalade all with fine delineation... Tasted single blind against its peers. The Chateau Rieussec 2008 should become an excellent Sauternes for the vintage. It has a floral bouquet with peach tinned apricot and a touch of marmalade all with fine delineation and touches of lemon curd developing with aeration. The palate is mellifluous on the entry with great depth and a luscious vanillary note with hints of orange peel marmalade and quince towards the long finish. Excellent. Tasted January 2012.

This cuts a broad swath with dense fig piecrust green almond and golden raisin notes held together by ginger cream and tarte Tatin notes. The long creamy finish lets a coconut milk hint check in. One for the cellar. Best... This cuts a broad swath with dense fig piecrust green almond and golden raisin notes held together by ginger cream and tarte Tatin notes.

Wow what a beautiful pale golden color (clean and clear). Absolutely intoxicating aromas of peach ripe citrus and apricot confiture. Shows tons of botrytis but remains fresh and lively on the mid-palate. Lots of toasty... Wow what a beautiful pale golden color (clean and clear). Absolutely intoxicating aromas of peach ripe citrus and apricot confiture. Shows tons of botrytis but remains fresh and lively on the mid-palate. Lots of toasty marshmallow and charred oak with everything in the right place (and in the right proportion). Loaded with fruit but replete with the proper acidty. Delicious and rich
