2009 Sauternes 2e Vin du Chateau Rieussec

The 2009 Carmes de Rieussec is a single-grape Semillon. This Second Vin from Chateau Rieussec reveals very intense fruits. The Sauternes from Bordeaux is immediately alluring, with a very creamy texture, quite full, and balanced. The lovely finish is enhanced by a vibrant touch.

Parker : 92 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Pale to medium gold colored, the 2009 Carmes de Rieussec opens with evolving honey-coated almonds, lemon pie and dried pineapple scents with hints of candied ginger, praline and cinnamon toast. Full-bodied and opulent in the mouth, it has compelling savory accents and just enough freshness to sustain the long, honey-nut finish.
