(02-1990) The most amber color of all. Golden yellow-brown, very bright. Nose completely closed. Soft and oily attack. Development on a melting, airy, nuanced structure, very collected in the mid-palate, well balanced which seduces by the delicacy and the magic of its tactile contact. Very long and very subtle finish on roasted nuances of mirabelle plum, butter and acacia honey. Very good potential.

(01-1988) Nectar-like if a bit on the sweet side, impressively complex, concentrated and focused. Deep gold, big, sweet and rich, with gobs of concentrated fig, brown sugar, butterscotch and oak flavor. A knockout.

(01-1998) 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.
