Natalie's Score: 97/100

A stunning Sauternes of the finest kind from the spectacular 2010 vintage. Rieussec is known for its top-drawer dessert wines, but this one trumps most of those in known or tasted memory. Gorgeous aromas of peach blossom, apricot preserves and honeyed ginger. Terrific balancing acidity. This would give the coveted Chateau d'Yquem a run for its money, especially when Rieussec is a fraction of the price.

Reviews and Ratings

This classic Bordeaux dessert wine from Rieussec is made from a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes that have been affected by the benevolent or noble rot botrytis which shrinks and dehydrates the grapes naturally and concentrates their flavours and complexity. The 2010 vintage was superb, and the craftsmanship shows in the glass. Highly recommended. - Community Wine Reviews
