Carmes de Rieussec 2008
Carmes de Rieussec (2nd wine of Chateau Rieussec) – Sauternes
Bill Blatch: This was a vintage that got badly frosted in April and very little wine was made. The bunches that did survive, however, went on to produce vibrant, steely, very finely-tuned Sauternes. This the second wine of Rieussec, shows exactly such qualities. It has quite a heavy-set base, but on which sits a fine overlay of crisp fruit. This is delicious right now.
