Tasting Notes Rieussec 2000
The deep golden, almost amber color reminds me of the 1983 in its youth. Orange marmalade, creme brulee, browned butter, and smoke emerge from the relatively complex, attractive, and full-bodied 2000. Exhibiting tremendous density, good acidity, and loads of fruit and botrytis, it is a strong candidate for the wine of the vintage in Sauternes. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2018.
