5 stars "Chateau Rieussec has been among the very top wines for several years now, and this is one of the best. The nose has a lovely perfume with intensity, freshness and beauty. The wine has a terrific finish; concentration with a light touch because of the freshness, finesse, a lovely vinosity and perfect balance."

93 points "This has a very primal nose, the oak exposed at the moment although there is obviously a great deal of fruit concentration underneath. The palate is well balanced, a little oaky on the entry, dried honey, lemon curd, apricot and orange peel towards the linear finish. Tightly coiled Sauternes, quite modern in style, this should develop over 8-10 years in the bottle before really opening up and one hopes, evolve a little more “personality”. Drink 2011-2025."
