Carmes de Rieussec 2004
Rieussec is regarded as one of the top Sauternes, second only to Yquem—some of their vineyards border each other in fact. This is their second wine, but a particularly successful effort. 2004 was a good vintage and made particularly luscious, sweet Sauternes.
Classic Sauternes nose of mushrooms, marmalade, beeswax Classic Sauternes nose of mushrooms, and apricot. Fruity
apricot and peach flavours, heavy and
luscious in the mouth. Very sweet, but with a good level of acidity to keep it balanced.
