Château Rieussec 375ml 2006

Golden yellow color, very textures and bright, rich hues. The nose is rich and complex, with strong hints of acacia honey and yellow fruits jam, in addition to mild iodine notes and marine. The palate is soft and round, with great body and structure, balanced in perfect balance between sweetness and flavor, Honey returns that accompany a noble final fruity aftertaste.

Château Rieussec 1Er Cru Classé Sauternes 375ml 2010
Pale yellow with coppery nuances. Exotic scents of lemon. Delicious aftertaste.
It is better not to pair this with food, as otherwise its fabulous taste might not be appreciated adequately.
It was served at a wedding.

Rieussec Sauternes 1Er Cru Classé 1/2 Flasche 375ml 2010
I do not know where I bought it.
A dark yellow . It brought back neat memories of daffodil. Full bodied, good acidity, as all Bordeaux.
