Rieussec Sauternes Blend 2000

Rated  on Aug 27, 2007

This wine has a very nice almost amber color to it. It also has aromas of smoke, orange marmalade, crème brulee and browned butter.

This wine has a lot of fruit to it flavor and is full bodied.

Rieussec is coming up in the world
Score: 91 points
Drink by: 3 to 7 years
Sampled 2/7/05. If it were not for the 1989 and the 2000 vintages the WOTY winning vintage in 2001 would have been a complete fluke for Rieussec. This wine is not as golden as Yquem but it does have a nice color to it. The wine had apricot and orange flavors followed by some toasted Oak and a smooth finish that was not too syrupy. This wine does not seem to be one for the ages and will definitely drink better while it is relatively young. A very nice effort.
