Sauternes is undoubtedly one of the greatest wines in the world, when it is great. Too often they're more sweet than great, and many times they are not necessarily worth the prices asked. It only took me one sip of the 2005 Chateau Rieussec to convince me of its greatness. This is absolutely brilliant Sauternes and competes very favorably with more expensive examples. Packed full of pineapple, sweet lemon and peach fruit, topped with notes of vanilla, crème brûlée, coconut cream, ginger and honey, it is a breathtakingly complex wine. Rich and sweet yet not nearly cloying, this is fabulous Sauternes and will keep for decades, as long as you can keep your hands off of it!
The easiest way to do that is to buy half bottles to hold you over while your full bottles mature.
