4.5 stars "Golden color. Complex aromas on the nose with notes of almond, kumquat, honey, mead. On the palate, rich, concentrated without being sirupy. Perfect with an almond pear tart."

"For several generations, Château Rieussec has been a leading name in Sauternes wines. As early as 1868, Charles Cocks remarked that "Beyond any of the others, Rieussec produces wines that are very similar to Yquem wines." Sémillon 95%, Muscadelle 2% and Sauvignon 3%. Length of ageing in oak barrels : 18 to 26 months depending on the year, including 55% in new barrels."
