Beautiful golden straw colour. Plenty of freshness with aromas of grapefruit and dominated by lychee. A lively attack on the palate bringing out the same sensations. The long finish is accompanied by tropical fruit notes and reflection of sauvignon.

Winemaker's Notes:

*"The 2011 Rieussec has a lifted...bouquet with scents of honey, almond and pineapple. Hopefully it will develop more definition by the time of bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with tropical fruit and mandarin on the entry and a satisfying viscous core of honeyed fruit. It seems a little disjointed towards the finish, although I am sure it will become more cohesive by the time of bottling..."*-Wine Advocate (91-93 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2014*
