Chateau Rieussec – First Growth Sauternes
Bill Blatch: As might be expected in such a vintage, this is a very full-bodied and positively rich wine: as always in the more concentrated vintages, all peaches and cream. It has a very full style, extremely rich, a really big, opulent wine that just goes on and on. This will certainly become a landmark Rieussec.
