Tasting Notes Rieussec 1998
Tasted at 28-50 restaurant at the 1994 dinner. 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. Tasted November 2011.
