Wine Spectator:

"Blockbuster. Wow. Wonderful. Dark yellow with a gold hue. Full-bodied and very sweet, with thick and powerful fruit. The spice, orange peel, honey and dried apricot character goes on and on. Long, long finish."

Product Description:

Collectors Alert!!! We just secured a precious but extremely limited parcel of 1990 Chateau Rieussec (owned by Chateau Lafite-Rothschild).

Hailing from one of the 3 highest scoring Sauternes vintages in the last 24 years (tying only 2011 and 2001), the 1990 Chateau Rieussec nailed a 'blockbuster' 97 point review from the Wine Spectator, outscoring the much higher priced Chateau d'Yquem (now starting at $300-400+ per bottle).

This is the second highest Wine Spectator-rated Chateau Rieussec ever, after its perfectly scored 2001. "Blockbuster. Wow. Wonderful...spice, orange peel, honey and dried apricot character goes on and on..."
