2004 Château Rieussec, Cru Classé Sauternes
With a deep golden hue, the aromas here are really honeyed with intense fruit. The palate shows great breadth of flavour with intense, tangy, botrytised fruit in evidence. A very flowing style that shows impressive texture and delineation, with the purity that one has come to expect of Rieussec. Nothing heady or overblown, just beautiful poise and good potential. A fine example in the vintage.
