Château Rieussec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

2000 was a difficult year for Sauternes. The weather conditions allowed very little development of botrytis or "noble rot" that is essential for these wines. There was, therefore, very limited production, but those who managed to coax a tiny amount of nectar from their vines did very well. Rieussec was particularly successful with intense flavours of butterscotch and lemon lifted by excellent acidity. Drinking from 2008-2020.
