Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
"This Rieussec has a dense, quite oaky nose at the moment with good fruit concentration underneath. Honey, apple-blossom and peach. The palate is very well balanced with a lot of botrytis. One of the few really unctuous, weighty 2007 Sauternes with great length and persistency. Honey and citrus lemon on the finish. Very focused." -Robert Parker 94 Points
Ratings
"Balanced and very spicy, with almond paste and apricot. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with a long, fruity, tangy finish. Layered and stylish." - Wine Spectator
Vineyard Notes
A cold, rainy winter, early bud-burst and very mild spring temperatures stimulated the vines’ growth. This was followed by a moderately hot summer that continued until August without excessive temperatures. Fine weather stabilized in early September, ensuring that the grapes were able to ripen correctly.
Production Notes
87% Semillon, 8.5% Sauvignon Blanc, 4.5% Muscadelle
Winemaker Notes
Very bright, golden color. Very candied nose with delicious notes of figs and apricots. Full-bodied and fatty in the mouth with intense notes of candied fruit and excellent length.
Other Notes
Classified "Premier Grand Cru" in 1855, Rieussec has held its reputation and the quality of its wine, throughout the difficult years which Sauternes properties have been through. Albert Vuillier, who took over in 1971, has paid special attention to the development of the vineyard and pushed the standard of the wines produced to the highest level. This policy has paid dividends, since in recent years, Rieussec has received particular acclaim in numerous tastings of the "Premier Cru" of Sauternes. In 1985, wishing to consolidate Rieussec's position, Albert Vuillier entered into partnership with Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) to go even further in the elusive search for the perfect Sauternes.
