2010 Rieussec, Sauternes

SKU #1160259 95-96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark I love the botrytis spice character to this wine with dried apricots and tropical fruits. It's full bodied, medium sweet with a long intense finish. It's very layered. Sweet wine of the vintage. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Structured firm, very spicy, while also showing fresh pineapple acidity. Concentrated and packed with botrytis. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A muscular version, with dacquoise and marzipan notes leading the way for creamed orange, white peach, ginger, mirabelle compote and tangerine accents that pump through the piecrust-filled finish. Has the vintage's raw oomph, as well as range and cut for balance. (JM, Web-2015) Inner quote mark

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright straw-gold. Spectacular, intense, exotic botrytized nose is redolent of honeyed yellow peach, apricot and saffron. Then very sweet in the mouth, with concentrated flavors of dried peach, ginger and honey lifted by bright acidity. The finish is long and polished, featuring persistent peach, honey and white pepper nuances. (ID) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Rieussec is a blend of 92% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle picked between 15 September and 4 November over four pickings. There are 160 grams per liter of residual sugar. It has a fragrant bouquet of light honeyed fruit, peony and brioche that does not quite have the daring-do of the 2011. The palate is well balanced with a viscous opening, harmonious with blood orange and quince notes forming toward the composed and elegant finish. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2017)
