The 2010 Rieussec was missing a little intellect when I tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle it has become a contender for the finest Sauternes of the vintage. It is blessed with a pure and lifted bouquet with ripe peach... The 2010 Rieussec was missing a little intellect when I tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle it has become a contender for the finest Sauternes of the vintage. It is blessed with a pure and lifted bouquet with ripe peach, nectarine and honey, hints of shaved ginger poke their head above the surface with aeration. It is very subtle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, perfectly judged acidity and convincing harmony. This is a sophisticated Sauternes with superb mineralite and outstanding persistency. I will confess that I pinned this as “Yquem” and was both shocked and pleased when its identity was revealed. Go buy. Drink 2016-2035. - NEAL MARTIN

Extremely rich and bright with lots of green fig honey and apricot. Very lush and round with some serious weight and power in reserve. Remarkably fresh now. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

I love the botrytis spice character to this wine with dried apricots and tropical fruits. It's full bodied medium sweet with a long intense finish. It's very layered. Wine of the vintage.

Intense nose with strong botrytis influence. Pure and rich though not the most monumental by a long way. And a little bit sticky and astringent on the end. All the ingredients are there but in completely embryonic form... Intense nose with strong botrytis influence. Pure and rich though not the most monumental by a long way.
