The 2014 Chateau Rieussec is a highly refined style of Sauternes. Displaying a gorgeous golden color this begins with aromas of apricots, vanilla crème brûlèe, white floral and roasted pineapple which soar from the glass. On the palate this possesses a striking seamless texture while demonstrating incredible concentration and balalnce of fruit and acidity. The mineral qualities are quite striking, as it offers a lovely saline character which underlines the profound flavors of crème brûlée, salted caramel, ripe banana and vanilla. Finishing exceedingly long, this outstanding effort will have a remarkable evolution and should cellar marvelously for decades. (Best 2022-2052) - November, 2017 (OB)
