2010 Sauternes Premier Cru Classe

Full bodied, generous, Chateau Rieussec has been a reference for Sauternes for many generations.

The 2010 Semillon, Sauvignon, and Muscadelle blend exhibits solid hue. The nose reveals lively and very flowery notes with light hints of wood. The Sauterne 1er Cru Classe offers a fresh palate, elegant, and complex. The very vibrant finish remains slightly spicy, with hints of exotic fruits. Beautiful length.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 Rieussec is a blend of 92% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle picked between 15 September and 4 November over four pickings. There are 160 grams per liter of residual sugar. It has a fragrant bouquet of light honeyed fruit, peony and brioche that does not quite have the daring-do of the 2011. The palate is well balanced with a viscous opening, harmonious with blood orange and quince notes forming toward the composed and elegant finish. This is a delightful Rieussec that I might prefer in its youth than with age. Tasted April 2016.
