1998 Rieussec, Sauternes

SKU #996600 91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 (no tasting note given)  (4/2000)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Pale yellow-gold. Superripe, nuanced nose combines peach, apricot, honey and a suggestion of tropical fruits. Silky, suave and opulent; very concentrated and spicy. This very rich Sauternes carries its 130 g/l r.s. quite gracefully, thanks to firm acids. Finishes very long, with spice and honey notes. Impeccably balanced wine with terrific material.  (7/2001)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Medium dark gold color. Aromas of cooked apple and lemon follow through to a full body, with lots of spice, salty nut and clove character. Big and dense, with lots going on. Oily. (Web only - 2008)

K&L Notes

From our K&L staff, we know that this property has many early ripening vineyards as does Yquem. A blend of 80% Semillon, 17% Sauvignon Blanc, and 3% Muscadelle, it's very rich and unctuous on the palate. Long legs. Very high in acid, but it doesn’t show through all the richness. High alcohol, powerhouse wine. Ager.
