Intensely sweet on the palate with a deep texture and and good complexity. This Sauternes is wonderfully long and dense with superb purity and precision. Extravagant sweet wine. Drinks amazingly well already now, so why wait?

The team at Chateau Rieussec have conjured a stellar wine in 2009. There is a little reduction at first that fortunately blows away, revealing thickly layered scents of honey, Danish pastry and quince that appear to gain vigor with every passing sip. The palate is stunning: very viscous in the mouth with tangy grapefruit, honey and white peach. It is still primal, but the acidity is perfectly judged and there is a life-affirming sense of precision and tension towards the finish. Exceptional. Drink now-2045. - Neal Martin

Long and very focused despite the weight and breadth, this features a gorgeous hint of warm tarte Tatin on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2035. – JM

18.5/20 Yellow gold. Interesting depth and complexity. Springs out of the glass. Very big and round and yet refreshing. Great satin texture. How I'd imagine Climens. Rather nice saltiness on the finish. GV

Its potential shows in the botrytis flavor and the touches of smoky wood and apricot jelly. With this leashed power it promises to be a very fine wine.
