Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 1er Grand Cru Classé

Winemaker's Notes

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

Expert Reviews
  • Decanter
    Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Medium gold; hefty nose, has botrytis; not very sweet, rather dour and lame, lacks zest and has a hot alcoholic finish; medium length.
