2008 Rieussec, Sauternes

SKU #1113272 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted single blind against its peers. The Chateau Rieussec 2008 should become an excellent Sauternes for the vintage. It has a floral bouquet with peach, tinned apricot and a touch of marmalade, all with fine delineation, and touches of lemon curd developing with aeration. The palate is mellifluous on the entry, with great depth and a luscious, vanillary note with hints of orange peel, marmalade and quince towards the long finish. Excellent. (NM)  (2/2012)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Rich rather than sweet, this is stuffed full of botrytis. The wine is powered through with this dusty texture, rolling richly but catching the dried fruit character.  (12/2009)

92 points Wine Spectator

 This cuts a broad swath, with dense fig, piecrust, green almond and golden raisin notes held together by ginger cream and tarte Tatin notes. The long, creamy finish lets a coconut milk hint check in. One for the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2025.  (3/2011)

Decanter

 A bouquet with beautifully creamy, botrytis fruit and richness. On the palate, there is more acidity than usual, matching the richness; the balance is excellent.  (6/2009)

Jancis Robinson

 Intense orange and apricot botrytis flavours with lots of spice on the tip of the tongue. Creamy depth and fine fresh length. Very pure to the end. Rich with lots of pleasure.  (5/2009)
