Wine Advocate Review
The 2011 Rieussec, a blend of 95% Semillon, 2% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle is an absolute dream. There is wonderful precision and mineralite on the nose, the new oak more integrated than a few months ago. The palate is beautifully balanced with clear honey, brioche and pralines, a sensual Rieussec that is utterly charming, hints of nougat and almond lingering on the long finish. Gorgeous! Tasted April 2016. Drinking now-2050..
Wine Tasting Notes
Floral nose of acacia, fresh pears and then candied apricots. The palate starts off very well-rounded and then becomes tighter and more minerally, with a long finish expressing well-developed fruity notes.
