Pour this on vanilla ice cream and enjoy.  This had apricots and vanilla pear notes running through your palate and doing jumping jacks.  It's very thick on the palate, but the oak cuts into it a little bit and takes away from what would otherwise be 4+ stars.

Very full bodied, seductive and long finish. Smells of tropical fruit. Rich and spicy with a high alcohol flavor.

The 1990 Rieussec has taken on some smoky, tokay-like notes. It is loaded with intense notes of vanilla, caramel, date skins and fig syrup, as well as daffodil pollen. This wine is intense and decadent, yet it has awesome acidity that leaves your tongue tingling. The finish is extremely long.
