1999 Château Rieussec - France, Bordeaux, Sauternais, Sauternes (3/16/2011)
– popped and poured –
– tasted non-blind over 30 minutes –
NOSE: intense and expressive; apricot; tons of botrytis spice; not very complex.
BODY: golden orange color of great depth; full bodied – thick.
TASTE: very intense; biscuity apricot; creamy; definitely on the fat side – even a bit too fat for me; nice biscuity oak on the finish; needs more acidity; either lacking in acidity, or simply way too young yet. If this ages well, it will be on the strength of its incredible concentration of fruit.
B: 50, 5, 11, 16, 7 = 89
