Slight disappointment for me. Seemed short and without much complexity.

Golden hue. Creamsicle jumps out of the glass with hints of vanilla bean. Orange peel and tangerine emerge on the palate. Good viscosity but not as flashy as the others tonight.

Fresh, apricot, nutty and salty aftertastes. Pineapple, nice tension. Unbelievably young.

Wow, I was born in 1987. This right here 1986. Damn!!😍 this After dinner, desert wine are for people who don't eat cake, créeme brûlée, sorbets. chocolate or any other form of calories.. smoky almonds, peaches, and honeyed apricot fruit in the nose and flavors.

The property is planted 80% of Sémillon, 18% Sauvignon and 2% Muscadelle.

Stunning 1986. Remarkably light on its feet for a Rieussec. Classic flavor profile but palate and mouthfeel more like typical Fargues. Will see many more.
