2007 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml)

SKU #1070254 93-96 points Wine Spectator

 Balanced and very spicy, with almond paste and apricot. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with a long, fruity, tangy finish. Layered and stylish. (JS, Web Only-2008)

90-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright, pale yellow-gold. Aromas of very ripe peach, honey and vanilla are a bit youthfully disjointed. Sweet, supple and fat, currently showing more spice than fruit. Finishes broad and spicy, with a suggestion of minerality. (ST)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Rieussec is a blend of 87% Semillon, 4.5% Muscadelle and 8.5% Sauvignon Blanc picked between 13 September and 31 October. It has an almost Barsac-like bouquet with barley sugar joining the ginger and honeyed notes, quite powerful although I feel this is just going through a sullen patch at the moment. The palate is very pure and balanced with a wonderful seam of acidity that slices through the viscous botrytis fruit, quite spicy on the finish, although it does not possess the persistence of the 2005 or 2009, just cutting away swiftly.

K&L Notes

K&L's Bordeaux buyer, Clyde Beffa Jr, says this is superior to Rieussec's 2005, and much cheaper!
