Pretty yellow straw color, elegant style with honey and buttery flavors that are of medium depth. Has some richness and length, finishing with a buttery, brown sugar flavor and honey. Decent length. Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1985 Rieussec 375ml


Winemaker's Notes:

It is made with a subtle blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle. Ageing in oak barrels 18 to 26 months depending on the year, 50 to 55% in new barrels.
