Chateau Rieussec 2003

2003 was a very hot year in Bordeaux, though seemingly without ill effect in Sauternes, at least based on this wine.  Chateau Rieussec's 2003 Sauternes is golden in colour, and a balanced wine with principal aromas of honey and creme brulee, and a very easy drinking palate.  A very good wine.  (Rating: Very Good, Tasted: Feb, 2011)
