Tasting Notes Rieussec 1997

91

This wine contains an extremely high percentage of Semillon (usually about 90%), which was to its benefit in 1997. The wine is light medium gold-colored, with a blockbuster nose of Grand Marnier liqueur intertwined with flower blossoms, smoky new oak, and coconut. Well-integrated wood has resulted in a seamless, full-bodied, unctuously-textured wine with considerable sweetness. This is a stunningly proportioned, beautifully pure wine. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025. (No tasting note was provided in Issue 128. We have instead included the text of the tasting note from Issue 122)

90

A slightly deeper hue than the 2001. This is a very distinctive nose, a little oxidative, burnt sugar, marmalade and a touch of caramel. The palate is full-bodied, slightly lower in acidity compared to the 1990. Fat, unctuous to the point of almost being cloying. At the mid-palate it loses its way a little, losing focus, a touch of warm alcohol. A little out of sorts so I would like to retaste this. Tasted November 2006.
