    (Chateau Rieussec (Sauternes)) As I wrote in my vintage report back in 2007, the 2005 growing season was blessed with botrytis. And yet in my early tastings, the vintage never really showed much of this character, and this impression is maintained here. This wine has an aromatic character very typical of passerillage, full of crystalline-candied fruit, with a rather dried-desiccated feel to it. On the palate it has a light and bright pineapple character very closely aligned with the nose in style, backed up by a sweet, fleshy, slightly oily texture, and some nice acidity giving it a very clean and stylish substance. Fine.
