Bright golden color.  Nose of saffron, burnt sugar, creme caramel and butterscotch.  In the mouth, thick, bright acidity and great balance.  Can't wait to see what it's big brother is like.

Expected more from this 2005 Sauternes

Although this is technically a second wine, of Chateau Rieussec, I still expected more from the 2005 vintage of this wine. Fairly deep gold in color with notes of honey and fennel on the nose. This wine was dense, but a bit lighter that I had expected. Lots of honey, with just light hints of cream, and maybe lemon zest. Not very complex, but straight forward. I would search out the first wine, or other labels from this vintage.
