2003 Rieussec, Sauternes

SKU #1028880 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark So rich and powerful with so much dried apricots and citrus aromas and flavors. Caramel and toffee. Full and very sweet. Amazing. Inner quote mark (10/2016)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Big, rich and juicy. Voluptuous, with aromas of caramel, apple and light tropical fruit. Full-bodied, round and very sweet, with loads of ripe fruit and a long butterscotch and piecrust aftertaste. Viscous texture. Hard not to drink it now. A wonderful sticky. Best after 2010. *Collectibles* (JS) Inner quote mark (12/2006)

92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium yellow-gold. Reticent but pure aromas of fruit salad, spices and vanilla, lifted by floral and mineral nuances. Wonderfully honeyed, fat fruit flavors are complemented by cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. The sexy oak treatment gives lift to the wine. A bit youthfully aggressive but very long on the back end, showing vanillin oak and a bit of warmth. But this one offers superb potential. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2005)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A rich, decadent nose of pineapple and quince with big dollops of honeyed fruit. The palate is very citrus and peachy, lacking the complexity that I expected. Delicious minerally core. Good acidity. Not as expressive as others so this may need some time to show its true potential. Tasted May 2004. (NM, Wine Journal) Inner quote mark (5/2004)
