  • 93 Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

    Tasted single blind against its peers. The Chateau Rieussec 2008 should become an excellent Sauternes for the vintage. It has a floral bouquet with peach, tinned apricot and a touch of marmalade, all with fine delineation, and touches of lemon curd developing with aeration. The palate is mellifluous on the entry, with great depth and a luscious, vanillary note with hints of orange peel, marmalade and quince towards the long finish. Excellent. Tasted January 2012.

  • 91 Jeannie Cho Lee, Asian Palate

    This wine is full bodied, rich with nice freshness and weight. Nose is youthful, vibrant and still oaky/woody. The palate is generous with a richness in the mid palate along with honey and marmalade notes. Good potential to age with moderate finish. Tasted in: Bordeaux, France. Tasted: 01-Apr-2009
