TN: 1990 Château Rieussec (France, Bordeaux, Sauternais, Sauternes)

  • 1990 Château Rieussec - France, Bordeaux, Sauternais, Sauternes
    A very similar experience to my last 1990 Riessec. A very good, in some ways atypical, Riessec. Colour rusty, deep gold. A beguiling bouquet of apricot, honey, molasses, old English Christmas cake, toffee and smoke. A beautiful texture in the mouth, weighty, viscous and satiny. Very rich, toffee, honey, treacle and poached pears and apricots. Very ripe but with sufficient acidity to hold it all together. Complex and multi-layered. Delicious now, but at 26 years of age, a young adult with years ahead of it. (94 pts.)
