I ended up purchasing a 375 ml of the 2002 Rieussec for only $29.99. I thought this was a steel because the vintage prior from Rieussec (2001) won the Wine Spectator wine of the year and was a 100 point wine. Now I know that vintages vary from year to year and the quality isn't always classic every vintage, but this 92 point rated wine will be a great addition to my cellar and didn't cost me a bundle of dough either. I almost purchased a 95 point rated 2004 Chateau Coutet ($39.99) but I noticed that most all the bottles had tartrate crystals resting near the bottom of the bottle, so I decided on the Rieussec.
So, next time you're looking for some great and age-worthy wines for your cellar, I strongly suggest browsing the off-vintage Sauternes for great values. Cheers!
