Description

    Chateau Rieussec 2001
    Sauternes
    light honey color
    Bottle (2)


    "Like lemon curd on the nose, turning to honey and caramel. Full-bodied and very sweet, with fantastic concentration of ripe and botrytized fruit, yet balanced and refined. Electric acidity. Lasts for minutes on the palate. This is absolutely mind-blowing. This is the greatest young Sauternes I have ever tasted." (100 pts. James Suckling, Wine Spectator, Sept. 2004)

    "The Ch√Ęteau Rieussec 2001 has a deep golden colour. The bouquet offers marmalade, quince jus and yellow flowers. It has fine definition, if not the killer precision of a top vintage, though the oak appears to have been assimilated since I last tasted it. There is something almost Germanic here, like a Beerenauselese! The palate is unctuous on the entry with kumquat, quince and barley sugar, almost Barsac-like in style leading to an unctuous finish that is long in the mouth..." (93 pts. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com #219, June 2015)
