1988 Château Rieussec (Bordeaux - Sauternes, France)Wine - Dessert $244.99 (750mL)
Sweet, ripe and loaded with honey, toffee, carameland nutmeg-scented pear and apricot aromas and flavors. Generous fig and tobacco notes echo on the long finish. A silky, supple, succulent wine.
Although the 1988 received the highest marks of the 1988, 1989 and 1990 vintages, it remains a very backward wine. Full-bodied and powerful, extremely rich and dense, it may be the least evolved 1988. The nose offers enticing coconut, orange, vanilla, and honeyed scents. The flavors are highly extracted. The wine's acidity and youthfulness suggest this wine needs another 5-10 years of cellaring. It should keep for 30 years.
