Tasted single blind against its peers. 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 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

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

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.
