Wine Advocate Review
Pale to medium gold colored, the 2009 Rieussec sings of creme caramel, chopped nuts, baked apples and spiced pears with hints of jasmine, peach blossoms and beeswax. Full-bodied, rich and decadently creamy in the mouth, the multilayered palate is beautifully lifted with fantastic freshness. It has a very long finish offering a lasting impression of great elegance and finesse. Simply stunning. Drinking now-2050. (14th Mar 2019)
Wine Tasting Notes
Chateau Rieussec Sauternes offers 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.
