Tasting Notes Rieussec 1982
Rich golden hew. Fragrant nose of butter and strawberries. Powerful palate. Fine acidity. Good level of botrytis. Intense honeyed finish. Lacks some finesse and sophistication but fine for this vintage. Tasted June 2001.
A maligned vintage for the sweet white wines of Bordeaux, Rieussec has, through a very strict selection process, turned out a lovely, fruity, spicy, lighter-styled wine with medium body and delicate tropical fruit flavors. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 3/86.
