I love the botrytis spice character to this wine with dried apricots and tropical fruits. It’s full bodied, medium sweet with a long intense finish. It’s very layered. Sweet wine of the vintage.
94-96 Structured firm, very spicy, while also showing fresh pineapple acidity. Concentrated and packed with botrytis.
A muscular version, with dacquoise and marzipan notes leading the way for creamed orange, white peach, ginger, mirabelle compote and tangerine accents that pump through the piecrust-filled finish. Has the vintage's raw oomph, as well as range and cut for balance. Best from 2018 through 2035. 6,000 cases made.
The 2010 Rieussec is a blend of 92% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle picked between 15 September and 4 November over four pickings. There are 160 grams per liter of residual sugar. It has a fragrant bouquet of light honeyed fruit, peony and brioche that does not quite have the daring-do of the 2011. The palate is well balanced with a viscous opening, harmonious with blood orange and quince notes forming toward the composed and elegant finish. This is a delightful Rieussec that I might prefer in its youth than with age.
Fungal tones, dried citrus, marmalade, fresh and cleansing finish. Has a lovely menthol and floral character. Richard Hemming MW
Sweet apricots, peach, orange and pineapple with honey, freshness and a generous finish are on full display with this wine. It lacks the depth found in the best vintages however. Drink this young if you like your Sauternes on the primary side. Age it for a decade or two, if you want more caramel and crème brulee sensations.by Jeff Leve in 2013
