WS96
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
Balanced and very spicy with almond paste and apricot. Full-bodied medium sweet with a long fruity tangy finish. Layered and stylish. Score range: 93-96 -JS

Sweet, vaguely sticky nose. Certainly impressive for the sugar level! And there’s an attractive savoury undertow that stops it being sickly. Lots there. Reverberates. Long. Very long.

Long. Very long. It has that thing that a good Condrieu has: a subtext. 19/20

The Rieussec 2007 has a subtle nose of dried honey pear a touch of quince and crushed stone on the nose the oak better integrated than last year. The palate is well-balanced with stem ginger and honeycomb on the entry. It is linear compared to its peers there is no flourish on the finish as yet but it has fine definition and hints of tangy marmalade and lemongrass that should become more accentuated with time. Tasted January 2011.-NM

Bright pale yellow-gold. Aromas of very ripe peach honey and vanilla are a bit youthfully disjointed. Sweet supple and fat currently showing more spice than fruit. Finishes broad and spicy with a suggestion of minerality... Bright pale yellow-gold. Aromas of very ripe peach honey and vanilla are a bit youthfully disjointed.

Loaded with ripe aromas of pineapple quince apricot and touches of spicy candied ginger. On entry this shows more spice and vanilla up front followed by more exotic tropical fruit. A rich supple texture is balanced with just enough acidity to keep everything fresh and balanced. This is still in an infant stage showing plenty of baby fat to make it a pleasure now but begging for another 5-10 more years in the cellar.
