2010 Sauternes Premier Cru Classe

Full bodied, generous, Chateau Rieussec has been a reference for Sauternes for many generations.

The 2010 Semillon, Sauvignon, and Muscadelle blend exhibits solid hue. The nose reveals lively and very flowery notes with light hints of wood. The Sauterne 1er Cru Classe offers a fresh palate, elegant, and complex. The very vibrant finish remains slightly spicy, with hints of exotic fruits. Beautiful length.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 Rieussec was missing a little intellect when I tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle it has become a contender for the finest Sauternes of the vintage. It is blessed with a pure and lifted bouquet with ripe peach, nectarine and honey, hints of shaved ginger poke their head above the surface with aeration. It is very subtle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, perfectly judged acidity and convincing harmony. This is a sophisticated Sauternes with superb mineralite and outstanding persistency. I will confess that I pinned this as Yquem and was both shocked and pleased when its identity was revealed. Go buy. Drink 2016-2035.
