  • 93 James Suckling

    “Very pretty second sweet wine of Rieussec with a medium to full body and a layered and tight mouthfeel. Medium sweet and vivid. Pineapple, green papaya and mangoes. Flavorful finish.” (2/12/2018)

  • 93 Vinous (Antonio Galloni)

    “A wine of joy and pure pleasure, the 2015 Carmes de Rieussec is absolutely delicious. Rieussec’s second wine is bright and lifted, yet shows plenty of depth in its pineapple, orange peel, mint, jasmine and lightly honeyed notes. Although the Grand Vin gets most of the attention at Rieussec, the Carmes is truly superb in 2015 and well worth taking a look at.” (2/27/2018)

  • 90-92 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Neal Martin)

    “The 2015 Carmes de Rieussec has a gorgeous lemon curd, honeysuckle and vanilla-scented bouquet that transcends what you consider to be a deuxième vin. The palate is very well balanced with a crisp line of acidity, very harmonious with fine weight and tension. This is a delightful Sauternes from the Rieussec team that should drink early, but clearly has the substance to age.” (28th April 2016)

  • 91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Lisa Perrotti-Brown)

    The 2015 Carmes de Rieussec has a pale to medium golden color and a lovely nose of lemon tart, orange marmalade and preserved apricots with hints of musk perfume and candied ginger. Medium to full-bodied, richly fruited and with compelling savory and earthy layers intermingled with the citrus preserves, it finishes with great freshness and length.” (2/22/2018)
