Château Rieussec 2001

Tasting notes

Score: 100
Issue: Sep 15, 2004
Top 100: 2004, Rank: 1
"Like lemon curd on the nose, turning to honey and caramel. Full-bodied and very sweet, with fantastic concentration of ripe and botrytized fruit, yet balanced and refined. Electric acidity. Lasts for minutes on the palate. This is absolutely mind-blowing. This is the greatest young Sauternes I have ever tasted. Best after 2010. –JS"
