Rieussec, Sauternes 2020

Rieussec

Case Format: 4x75cl

Max score: 94.0

Château Rieussec has been a leading wine in Sauternes for several generations. Ranked as a Premier Grand Cru in 1855, it is made with a subtle blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle. Rieussec has been owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild since 1985 and is located at one of the highest points of Sauternes in the village of Fargues where its vineyards border those of Château d`Yquem.

Delicate golden colour with soft green glints. Intense nose with tremendous aromatic richness. Initial notes of citrus zest are followed by lemon tart, and then toasted notes reminiscent of freshly baked brioche. The palate offers mandarin zest and candied orange, enlivened by a touch of star anise which underscores the wine’s aromatic freshness. Dense and rich, the palate has good length with a pleasant hint of bitterness on the finish.

The 2020 Rieussec has a pale lemon-straw color. It offers up vibrant, gregarious notes of fresh pineapple, juicy apricots, and spiced pears, leading to suggestions of allspice, orange blossom, and almond tart. The palate is lively and intense, with a gorgeous satiny texture and a crisp line lifting the hedonic fruit to a long finish.
