Tasting Notes Rieussec 2006
Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. The Rieussec ’06 is adorned with a lighter, more fragrant, floral bouquet that does not quite have the freshness and delineation of the best 2006 Sauternes. It gains a little clarity with time. The palate is harmonious, very well balanced with good acidity counterbalancing the botrytized fruit. It has an irresistible mellifluous texture, long and languid on the rich, but focused finish. Excellent. Tasted January 2010.
