Chateau Rieussec 2006

Chateau Rieussec – First Growth Sauternes

Bill Blatch: Here the vintage character exactly marries that of the château: this is a full-styled vintage and also a full-styled château. The result is quite a rich Sauternes, with all sorts of voluptuous botrytis-induced dried fruit flavours and a lovely tone to the finish that just picks it all up at the end and prevents it from ever being dull.
