Light golden with just the slightest tint of green, the 1983 Rieussec, from an excellent year for Sauternes, is certainly one of this property's greatest wines. Well structured with excellent acidity, and a deep, long, rich, full-bodied, viscous texture, this wine, despite the richness and power, is neither heavy nor cloying. It has gorgeous balance and a very long, lingering, spectacular finish. One of the great successes of the vintage.HOME SUPPLY

An exclusive declassified Sauternes from the greatest estate in the region. Chateaux that do not have a second wine often declassify the production that does not quite make it into the final selection of the Grand Vin. Naturally we cannot reveal the name of the Chateau in question but rest assured that this little beauty will not disappoint! The 2009 vintage was a great one for Sauternes, on a par with 2007 and 2001, and capable of ageing for 30+ years.
Classic toffee, caramel and cold tea aromas and flavours, then a pleasingly fresh, almost dry, finish.
