Brilliant pale golden colour with pale gold hue. On the nose strong botrytis characters are present along with some honeyed peach, apricot and spice. The palate possesses excellent concentration and length with luscious mouthfilling flavours of honeyed lemon butter, ripe apricot, peach, marmalade and spice. Clean fresh finish with long very persistent aftertaste of honeyed lemon butter, ripe apricot and marmalade.

Tasted single blind against its peers. The Chateau Rieussec 2008 should become an excellent Sauternes for the vintage. It has a floral bouquet with peach, tinned apricot and a touch of marmalade, all with fine delineation, and touches of lemon curd developing with aeration. The palate is mellifluous on the entry, with great depth and a luscious, vanillary note with hints of orange peel, marmalade and quince towards the long finish. Excellent. Tasted January 2012.
