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.

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 â€œYquemâ€ and was both shocked and pleased when its identity was revealed. Go buy. Drink 2016-2035. - Neal Martin

Scented and very vibrant with a real unctuousness that recalls Climens. Very sweet but with interesting layers of flavour. Intriguing wine! Lots of to chew on. Real grip. 18.5/20
