Sauternes (2nd wine of Chateau Rieussec, Premier Cru Classe of Sauternes)
Semillon, Sauvignon (sweet)
"Floral nose, acacia, fresh pear and candied apricot. Mouth very round from the beginning, then tightens, becomes more mineral with a long and expressive finish in fruity notes"
Enjoyable with desserts, complex cheeses, exotic food, or just by itself for a pure moment of pleasure....
