Lively on the nose with a big, creamy marshmallow and dried tropical fruit tone supported by background notes of sweetly spiced wood and roasted nuts. Big and creamy in the mouth with a touch of caramel dominating the dried pear fruits and background botrytis tones. A bit hollow on the midpalate but the caramel cream tones gain in intensity.

Typical volatile nose with great depth to the honeycomb, biscuit and orange blossom nose. this features good intensity of botrytis and offers up notes of banna and coconut as well as hints of fermenting tea and a core or creme caramel. Sweet but not overly so with great bright acidity. Lush yet with the citrussy fruit that offer relief from the weight, abit hot and even spicy with a hint of pink peppercorn adding cut across the palate before finishing with lots of caramelized orange peel on the long finish. Not a huge fan of Sauternes but this was quite nice and mature. 2007-2020

This is my first Sauternes tasting, so take this as you will. Bouquet reminded me of a vegetable garden, almost like tomato leaves. Rich, but not over-poweringly so. Drank with pears and blue cheese, which it is supposed to complement...didn't see what the big deal was there. Not bad, but I just don't think Sauternes is my thing.

Actually, 3.9 stars. Color, this sauternes has a nice, deep, golden color, very appealing. On the nose, very complex, dried apricot, caramel, honey, classic nose! Midpalate, oil think, full bodied, dried apricot and honey are interacting harmoniously, it completely covers my tongue. Finish, very smooth, textured, nice complexity, lingering in the mouth (50+ seconds), round, and well balanced. Overall, this sauternes is very well made. It has a lot of potential. It is young and has not peaked yet. I'd recommend you put it away for 40 even 60 more years! It will only get better over time. Bottled at 13%. I am 93+ on this effort now. I can see it as a 95 pointer in 30+ years from now. Happy drinking!

I love the botrytis spice character to this wine with dried apricots and tropical fruits. It's full bodied, medium sweet with a long intense finish. It's very layered. Wine of the vintage. James Suckling. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Rieussec 1500ml
