Stuart McCloskey "Stylish Sauternes from an outstanding vintage. At perfect maturity and awaiting the company of Stilton or Roquefort."
95 Points - Neal Martin
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, hints of nougat and almond lingering on the long finish. Gorgeous!
Wine Enthusiast - A ripe dessert wine, not shockingly sweet but an easy companion for sorbet or a fruit tart. The apricot flavors are wrapped in a honey-thick texture, balanced with firm acids, and the intensity lasts through a long finish.
