1997 Rieussec, Sauternes

SKU #170070 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Captivating, tangy aromas of vineyard peach, pear, white flowers and curry powder. Supple and very concentrated; thick but lively thanks to perfectly integrated acidity. Fruit notes nicely complemented by spice tones. Conveys a tactile impression of extract. Long and strong on the back end. Still quite youthfully unevolved and built for long life. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (7/2000)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This wine contains an extremely high percentage of Semillon (usually about 90%), which was to its benefit in 1997. The wine is light medium gold-colored, with a blockbuster nose of Grand Marnier liqueur intertwined with flower blossoms, smoky new oak, and coconut. Well-integrated wood has resulted in a seamless, full-bodied, unctuously-textured wine with considerable sweetness. This is a stunningly proportioned, beautifully pure wine. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2000)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Much paler and greener than young Rieussec used to be. Alluring nose somehow combines tropical fruits with some animal scents. Rich, charming, subtle, flirtation and appetising on the palate. It should provide pleasure quite early in its life. (JR) 17/20 Inner quote mark (12/2001)
