Lot #196. Rieussec 2005

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 97 WA.
"The 2005 Rieussec is a blend of 90% Semillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle picked between 23 September and 27 October. It has a fabulous bouquet that is mineral-rich and tensile. The palate repeats its performance from last year: focused, tense, laden with botrytis-rich fruit with a crystalline and sorbet-fresh finish that seals the deal. One of the best releases from the estate in recent years. Tasted April 2016." Neal Martin, Wine Advocate Interim, Jan 2017
Provenance: The Alzette Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $180
