Tasting Notes Rieussec 2015

97-98

The is a phenomenal wine with dried pineapple and pear aromas and flavors. Full, very sweet. Incredible depth and power. Super complex.

I’m delighted with this, winemaker Charles Chevalier enthused, and so he should be, for this is a superb Sauternes. Rich, exotic and concentrated with nearly 150 grams of sugar, supported by oak and acidity. Pineapple, citrus and pear flavours are beautifully entwined here. Drink: 2020-32

The 2015 Rieussec, a blend of 86% Semillon and 14% Sauvignon Blanc, was picked over five tries through the vineyard between 9 September and 27 October. "We had a bit of frost towards the end and 10% was harvested afterwards. The quality was affected and this was put into the second wine," winemaker Eric Kohler informed me. This year the grand vin constitutes between one-third and one-fourth of the total crop. It has a fragrant bouquet, of honey, white almond and peach, that is disarmingly seductive. The palate is refined and poised: a lovely thread of acidity here, with a keen mineral-laden finish that leaves the mouth tingling with pleasure. This is a top-tier Rieussec that hits all the right buttons.
