Item no. 109606
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.
Barrel Sample: 93-96 Points
Structured firm, very spicy, while also showing fresh pineapple acidity. Concentrated and packed with botrytis.
Barrel Sample: 94-96 Points
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.
Barrel Sample: 95-96 Points
Sporting 140gms/L residual sugar, the 2010 Rieussec displays impressive clarity on the nose, with fresh pineapple, grapefruit and a touch of lime flower, and tangible minerality. The palate has that "Tropicana" vibe with guava, almond and pineapple that slightly obfuscates the terroir towards the finish. This is a highly enjoyable, comparatively rich 2010 Sauternes, but without the intellect of some of the finest examples of the vintage.
Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points
