User Reviews for Château Rieussec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1990 Rieussec is more precocious and flattering than the more<br/>highly rated 1988 and 1989, with its tropical fruit-scented nose, big, spicy,<br/>rich, high alcohol flavors, and a fine underpinning of acidity giving<br/>everything clarity and crispness. It is drinkable at an earlier age than the<br/>1989, but it will last just as long. <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate)
