Rieussec Sauternes Blend 1986
A Taste of Honey

drinking this wine last night at the end of a fabulous meal was the inevitable hit of the night.  to steal the lyrics from a beatles song: a taste of honey, a taste much sweeter than wine.  well, this wine was a honey DEW.  golden in colour and sweet nectar on the nose with gardenias, star jasmine and honeysuckle on the nose it evolved into a pure honey expression on the palate and was unctious on the finish.  i wish i had more!

10 starzz outta 5 on this one!

At peak
Score: 92 points
Drink by: 3 to 7 years
Sampled 12/31/06. The wine has gotten more golden in color in recent years and is also peaking on the palate. Honey, apricot, some candied nuts and peach syrup are slightly off-set by a little bit of Oak and no too much glycerin. If only the finish lasted longer. . .
