White Bordeaux Blend - Sauternes-Barsac Premier Cru Classe
Producer Notes

Chateau Rieussec is one of the few producers of Sauternes who approaches Chateau d'Yquem in terms of quality and consistency. The vineyards of the two chateaux are actually located alongside one another in the communes of Sauternes and Barsac. Chateau Rieussec is one of 11 Premier Cru properties designated in the 1855 classification, and was originally owned by Carmelite monks pre-dating the... More »

Issue Issue 115

($72-$95) Pale yellow-gold. Superripe nose dominated by honey and marzipan. Hugely ripe and deep, with compelling layers and depth of fruit. Superconcentrated, exotic flavors of apricot, minerals and coconut. Wonderfully chewy, thick and sweet, and extremely long on the aftertaste. A huge wine that will impress early but will really need a minimum of a decade to shed some of its baby fat.

Still pale gold. A slightly burnt note on the nose with notable acidity. A certain nuttiness on both nose and palate and a great cleansing streak of acidity throughout but less creamy than the Climens ? more burly. This should develop reasonably early and is perhaps not the finest 2001. Very big initially but it falls away a little on the finish in comparison to the Climens and Suduiraut.

A monumental effort, the 2001 Rieussec boasts a light to medium gold color in addition to a fabulous perfume of honeysuckle, smoky oak, caramelized tropical fruits, creme brulee, and Grand Marnier. The wine is massive and full-bodied yet neither over the top nor heavy because of good acidity. With intense botrytis as well as a 70-75-second finish, this amazing Sauternes will be at its apogee between 2010-2035.

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.

This is a crazy wine! It's sweet, but not sugary. Mushrooms, furniture wax, spices then dried oranges, lemons, pineapples, and just a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied, with great density and power, yet balanced and refined. So amazing, but give this five to six years still. Pull the cork in 2016. 145 grams RS.

Light gold with an intensely honeyed nose, it explodes on the attack with a monumental thickness that is super-concentrated and full bodied. It is chewy, but not heavy and has a finish that won't quit. A definite rival to Yquem and a relative bargain.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
