Lot #118. Rieussec 1989

Description: Consists of 2 Half Bottles, 0.375L
Score: 92 ST.
"Lively, complex, fresh aromas of tropical fruit, honey and spicy oak. Sweet and viscous in the middle palate; kept fresh by apple and pear notes and harmonious acidity. Very concentrated and deep. Very long on the aftertaste; has the sheer material to buffer its alcohol. Rieussec switched to later bottling with this vintage: 30 rather than 24 months after the harvest." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 1998
Provenance: The Gloire Cellar
Notes: Very lightly wine stained, lightly scuffed capsules, 1 very lightly scuffed, 1 lightly scuffed, very lightly damp stained, very lightly, very lightly mold stained labels.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $50
