Château Rieussec Blanc

The nose is intense and develops aromas and candied yellow fruit ripened on. Botrytis notes is small but fine and delicate.

4/5

the Muscadelle has a very shutdown color. Roasted flavours.
To this sweet would have suit better a softer meat.
That sweet is perfect for special occasions.

Château Rieussec Bordeaux 2012
Its aromas remind me of acacia flowers. Very dense, unctuous.
This Bordeaux has a complex structure.
