September 16, 2020 - Similar to my previous bottle from 01/15/17, "... simple.... viscous... sugary.... lacking acidity"
This is not a bad wine but its not remotely close to spectacular. I see no room for improvement.
August 23, 2020 - Mellowing beautifully - nice nutty candied orange, almond, hint of kerosene
August 14, 2020 - Super frais et tout simplement délicieux.
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 28, 2020 - Vin a boire avec respect ma 3e bouteille toujours aussi bon veillie tres bien. A++
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.
July 10, 2020 - Dominated by apricot and honey.
July 1, 2020 - very nice.
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
