    Critical Acclaim:

    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

    Wine Spectator

    Structured firm, very spicy, while also showing fresh pineapple acidity. Concentrated and packed with botrytis.

    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.

    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
