    2011 Sauternes 1er Cru Classe

    Chateau Rieussec whites-classified Premier Cru in 1855- are renowned for the distinctive string character and very pronounced rich sweetness. The 2011 Chateau Rieussec is a blend of Semillion, Sauvignon, and Muscadelle.

    The vintage displays lovely and already intense golden colour. The delicately wooded nose exudes honeysuckle and acacia flower. The generous and ample 2001 Chateau Rieussec combines syrup-like notes with freshness. Discreet fruit flavours bring superb balance to the whole. The finish offers length and persistence, enhanced with light hints of bitterness to release the flavours.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2011 Rieussec, a blend of 95% Semillon, 2% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle is an absolute dream. There is wonderful precision and mineralité on the nose, the new oak more integrated than a few months ago. The palate is beautifully balanced with clear honey, brioche and pralines, a sensual Rieussec that is utterly charming, hints of nougat and almond lingering on the long finish. Gorgeous! Tasted April 2016.
