Chateau Rieussec 2019 Sauternes

$ 15999

Vinous: 97 Points

The 2019 Rieussec is absolutely gorgeous. Gracious and supremely elegant in feel the 2019 is immediately impressive. An exotic melange of lemon confit marzipan white flowers passionfruit and tangerine oil opens effortlessly. The 2019 is compelling from start to finish. Harvest took place from October 8 to 15 in three passes. The 2019 is the first vintage that will be offered in a stylish new bottle. It is no secret Sauternes has struggled of late. I must say I really liked the new and very modern presentation which shows a more playful side of Sauternes that might just work in creating a bit more excitement around these wines.

Wine Advocate: 96 Points

Pale lemon-gold in color, the 2019 Rieussec flaunts a delicately scented nose of fresh grapefruit, lemon curd, lime leaves and clover honey with wafts of jasmine, white truffles and nutmeg. The palate slowly builds, revealing layers of apple and citrus fruits with loads of savory accents, framed by refreshing acidity and a seductively oily texture, finishing on a lingering honey-nut note.
