2007 Sauternes 1er Cru Classe
The vintage displays a very shiny golden hue. The nose exudes intense candied fruits with delicious fig and apricot notes. The palate is thick and generous, also with intense yet pleasant candied fruits, as well as lovely length.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2007 Rieussec is a blend of 87% Semillon, 4.5% Muscadelle and 8.5% Sauvignon Blanc picked between 13 September and 31 October. It has an almost Barsac-like bouquet with barley sugar joining the ginger and honeyed notes, quite powerful although I feel this is just going through a sullen patch at the moment. The palate is very pure and balanced with a wonderful seam of acidity that slices through the viscous botrytis fruit, quite spicy on the finish, although it does not possess the persistence of the 2005 or 2009, just cutting away swiftly. Tasted April 2016.
