Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 2007

Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 750ml 2007       
Sku: 1544960*

For several generations, Château Rieussec has been a leading name in Sauternes wines. As early as 1868, Charles Cocks remarked that "Beyond any of the others, Rieussec produces wines that are very similar to Yquem wines”.

Tasted single blind against its peers. The Rieussec 2007 has a subtle nose of dried honey, pear, a touch of quince and crushed stone on the nose, the oak better integrated than last year. The palate is well-balanced with stem ginger and honeycomb on the entry. It is linear compared to its peers, there is no flourish on the finish as yet, but it has fine definition and hints of tangy marmalade and lemongrass that should become more accentuated with time. Tasted January 2011.”

This Rieussec has a dense, quite oaky nose at the moment with good fruit concentration underneath. Honey, apple-blossom and peach. The palate is very well balanced with a lot of botrytis. One of the few really unctuous, weighty 2007 Sauternes with great length and persistency. Honey and citrus lemon on the finish. Very focused although perhaps it lacks the "soul" of some other 2007's here. Drink 2010-2025. Tasted April 2008.
