Château Rieussec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 1976

Winemaker's Notes:

The huge nose of toasted almonds, caramel, chocolate, and brown sugar does<br/>exhibit a trace of volatile acidity, so technocrats are likely to be turned<br/>off. Incredibly rich and full bodied, with a honeyed, luscious texture and<br/>extremely intense flavors, this exotic, hugely proportioned wine (15% alcohol)<br/>can only be served as a dessert. The yield at Rieussec in 1976 was 2.5<br/>hectoliters per hectare, which is approximately one third of a glass of wine<br/>per vine. This is a bold, rather overblown style of Sauternes, but I love<br/>it. <br/>(Robert Parker Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition - Jan 1998)
