Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Quiet delicious, and unlike many dessert wines - not to sweet. It's acidity is lifted to make it a fresh ray of sunshine in the mouth. It's full of candied pineapple, honey comb, white flowers and a touch of fresh apricot. Try it with the gooeyist cheese you can find! @wrightwineblog
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A dessert wine from France, this Sauternes shows medium-gold in the glass, slow "legs" reflecting the alchohol content. Aromas of pineapple and orange, there is rich honey on the palate with a lift of smoky notes. Ideal for sipping with cheeses, or rich Christmas desserts.
Carmes De Rieussec 2015 is a delicious Sauterne fragrant with exotic florals, sweet with tropical fruit, orange zest, honeyed stone fruit balanced with vibrant acidity. This is Carmes de Rieussec's second wine and superb it is. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
