Winemaker's Notes:

"Big, rich and juicy. Voluptuous. Aromas of caramel, apples and light tropical fruit. Full-bodied, round and very sweet with loads of ripe fruit and a long butterscotch and piecrust aftertaste. Viscous texture. Hard not to drink now. Wonderful sticky...95." WA 11/06.

This is a bodybuilder of a wine. Massive. Full-bodied, very sweet, yet you don't feel it. It seems almost tannic, but there is great sweetness and power. Ginger and honey. Fantastic wine. Score range: 95-100 (JS) Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Rieussec 375ml
