Reviews/Information
"96 out of 100…The 2010 Rieussec was missing a little intellect when I tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle it has become a contender for the finest Sauternes of the vintage. It is blessed with a pure and lifted bouquet with ripe peach, nectarine and honey, hints of shaved ginger poke their head above the surface with aeration. It is very subtle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, perfectly judged acidity and convincing harmony. This is a sophisticated Sauternes with superb mineralite and outstanding persistency. I will confess that I pinned this as “Yquem” and was both shocked and pleased when its identity was revealed. Go buy. Drink 2016-2035. " - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

(95-96) out of 100...I love the botrytis spice character to this wine with dried apricots and tropical fruits. Its full bodied, medium sweet with a long intense finish. Its very layered. Sweet wine of the vintage. - James Suckling
