Four lovely bottles of the very good, 1997 Chateau Rieussec. Bought en-primeur many moons ago and kept in bond since, I have just taken a few more cases out, some to sell and some to drink. Great for the Christmas period. I have included some photos of the OWC and original packaging which is not included in this sale. Wonderful colour and fill level.
Parker - This wine contains an extremely high percentage of Semillon (usually about 90%), which was to its benefit in 1997. The wine is light medium gold-colored, with a blockbuster nose of Grand Marnier liqueur intertwined with flower blossoms, smoky new oak, and coconut. Well-integrated wood has resulted in a seamless, full-bodied, unctuously-textured wine with considerable sweetness. This is a stunningly proportioned, beautifully pure wine.
OWC not included.- sale is for four bottles.
Shipped recorded/insured in shockproof packing.
