CHATEAU RIEUSSEC 1990
Château Rieussec 1990
Sauternes, 1er Cru Classé
u. 9bn, 1vts, labels soiled and dusty, capsules slightly worn, 1 slightly wrinkled

In 2012, there is a touch of barley sugar on the nose, linked to the very high sweetness of this vintage, comparable to 1929. Lemon curd and tar. Really luscious and rich but never cloying. Incredible with English strawberries and Cornish crème fraîche - in fact, the wine has the texture of crème fraîche. Endlessly mouth-coating and silkily opulent. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
