Chateau Rieussec 2008 1er Cru Sauternes - Barsac 75cl / 13.5%
A bottle of 2008 Château Rieussec 1er Cru from Sauternes. The estate is currently owned by Domaines Baron de Rothschild, and the vineyards, planted with 95% Sémillon, 3% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle, border those of Château D’Yquem to the west.
'The Chateau Rieussec 2008 should become an excellent Sauternes for the vintage. It has a floral bouquet with peach, tinned apricot and a touch of marmalade, all with fine delineation, and touches of lemon curd developing with aeration. The palate is mellifluous on the entry, with great depth and a luscious, vanillary note with hints of orange peel, marmalade and quince towards the long finish. 93/100' Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 2012
