Chateau Rieussec 2005

Beautiful intense golden color. Pleasantly fresh, showing jammy notes and candied apricots & figs. Round and smooth on the palate, with candied notes and a long finish.96 points, Wine Spectator

"Shows enticing aromas of toffee, cream, dried apricot and caramel. Full-bodied, very sweet and thick, with honey and caramel flavors. Long and rich, oozing with sweet, ripe fruit, this is like liquid candy. Best after 2016." 96 points, Wine Spectator"Full yellow-gold. Expressive aromas of pineapple, coconut, sweet vanillin oak and spices. Then wonderfully thick, fat and sweet, with the exotic coconut character carrying through in the mouth. Finishes saline and powerful, with palate-staining flavors of pineapple, coconut and spicy oak. Conveys a strong impression of solidity." 93 points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
