1985 Rieussec, Sauternes

K&L Notes

A three-star Sauternes, according to critic Michael Broadbent in his book Vintage Wine: "Scent of walnuts and barley sugar' rich, good texture and acidity (1989). Two years later: pure gold; vanilla, honey; sweet, very attractive."

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
