Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A ripe, flashy style, with a big core of pineapple chiffon, creamed peach, apricot and tangerine notes matched to a creamy mouthfeel. Shows a blip of heat on the finish, but should settle in shortly. An approachable version. Drink now through 2020." --The Wine Spectator*_Half Bottle_*

I love the botrytis spice character to this wine with dried apricots and tropical fruits. It's full bodied, medium sweet with a long intense finish. It's very layered. Wine of the vintage. James Suckling. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Rieussec 1500ml
