2007 Rieussec

Colour: White
Vintage: 2007
Appellation: Sauternes
93
Undoubtedly among the top tier of properties in Sauternes, Rieussec has been highly revered for long over a century. Thought by many to be this regions second best estate next to Yquem, it has churned out many great vintages, most notably the 100 point (Wine Spectator) 2001. In 1984 it was sold by Albert Vuillier to Domaine Rothschild (of Lafite fame) who owns it to this day. Rieussec has approximately 90 hectares under vine averaging 25 years of age. Yields are extremely low (around 15hl/ha) and so a poultry 5,000 cases are produced each year.

Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 29/02/2012 Tasted single blind against its peers. The Rieussec 2007 has a subtle nose of dried honey, pear, a touch of quince and crushed stone on the nose, the oak better integrated than last year. The palate is well-balanced with stem ginger and honeycomb on the entry. It is linear compared to its peers, there is no flourish on the finish as yet, but it has fine definition and hints of tangy marmalade and lemongrass that should become more accentuated with time. Tasted January 2011. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 27/04/2010 This has a very primal nose, the oak exposed at the moment although there is obviously a great deal of fruit concentration underneath. The palate is well balanced, a little oaky on the entry, dried honey, lemon curd, apricot and orange peel towards the linear finish. Tightly coiled Sauternes, quite modern in style, this should develop over 8-10 years in the bottle before really opening up and one hopes, evolve a little more “personality”. Drink 2011-2025. (93)

92-94

Neal Martin

This Rieussec has a dense, quite oaky nose at the moment with good fruit concentration underneath. Honey, apple-blossom and peach. The palate is very well balanced with a lot of botrytis. One of the few really unctuous, weighty 2007 Sauternes with great length and persistency. Honey and citrus lemon on the finish. Very focused although perhaps it lacks the "soul" of some other 2007's here. Drink 2010-2025. Tasted April 2008.
