Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 2011 750ml
A floral nose of acacia, fresh pears and then candied apricots. The palate starts off very well-rounded and then becomes tighter and more minerally, with a long finish expressing well-developed fruity notes.
Blend: 84% Semillon, 12% Sauvignon, 4% Muscadelle
97 James Suckling
This shows incredible freshness and power, with dried pineapples, mangoes and papayas. Full body, medium-sweet with electrifying acidity. Vibrates your palate. Barrel sample still.
96 Wine Spectator
Intense, with ginger, yellow apple chutney, dried pineapple and papaya flavors coursing through a finish that brims with singed almond and lemon chiffon flavors. This retains a touch of youthful rawness, featuring a bitter orange note that’s yet to be absorbed. No need to rush. Best from 2018 through 2040.
95 Wine Enthusiast
Layers of complex botrytis give this wine an immensely aromatic character. It is sumptuous and generous, ripe and full-bodied. The essential acidity comes through the dry structure of botrytis and sweet honey. The fruit is only just beginning to show and the wine is obviously very young. Drink from 2022.
95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Rieussec, a blend of 95% Semillon, 2% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle is an absolute dream. There is wonderful precision and mineralité on the nose, the new oak more integrated than a few months ago. The palate is beautifully balanced with clear honey, brioche, and pralines, a sensual Rieussec that is utterly charming, and hints of nougat and almond lingering on the long finish. Gorgeous! Tasted April 2016.
