Chateau Rieussec 2002

91 points

Sauternes. 13.5%

A complex creamy tarte aux pommes sort of Sauternes. Delicious now. I had thought that 2002 was a fine tight acidic vintage but this has soft acidity.

I’m sure it will last 10+ years but it is surprisingly approachable now. Enjoy.

PS from a full bottle purchased in Bordeaux (no travel).
