    This is not a bad wine but its not remotely close to spectacular. I see no room for improvement.

    De la marmelade, des ananas, du miel et
    du toffee avec un peu de thym.
    La finale est bien longue et
    persistante, un vin de méditation, il
    a été bu seul sans nourriture, un beau moment!

    July 27, 2020 - A wedding anniversary treat, that familiar honeyed sweet burnt caramel and apricot taste, the acidity cutting through to keep it all in balance. Not the most complex wine still a huge pleasure, 35 years after my first ever Sauternes (rieussec 1976)

    July 14, 2020 - Popped'n poured with dessert at La Piquette in Bastille Day. This was rocking, with the caramel and growl fruit notes a perfect pairing with the cannelés and orange cake. Vive la France!

    July 14, 2020 - Wonderful! Cured almonds, quince paste, apricot. Lingering tropical fruit on the finish, which is very long and pleasant. This is a treat.

    June 6, 2020 - Nice orange colour; rich abricot orange nose; nice sweet acidity, really well balanced, power, body, taste; more rounded than usual for Rieussec (which I normally find more pointed and acidic as opposed to voloptoeus and sweet); a nice surprise for Rieussec
