Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 1er Cru Classe 2009

89% Semillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Muscadelle. Rieussec is right next to Yquem, and is 2nd only to Yquem in quality and stature. 2009 a great vintage. Full bodied, oozing with flavor. "Thickly layered scents of honey, Danish pastry and quince that appear to gain vigor with each sip. Palate is stunning: very viscous in the mouth with tangy grapefruit, honey and white peach. Acidity is perfectly judged. There is a life-affirming sense of precision & tension towards the finish."
