2009 Rieussec

Colour: White
Vintage: 2009
Appellation: Sauternes
97 (NM)
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

97

Neal Martin

The 2009 Rieussec has long been a favourite of mine. It is a little deeper in colour than its peers. This is rich and powerful with clear honey, acacia, orange blossom and quince aromas, just a hint of crème caramel in the background. The palate is very well balanced with another superb line of acidity. Very pure and focused with captivating tension on the finish, the tongue tingling with Szechuan peppers on the aftertaste. Wonderful. - vinous.com, March 2019

Michael Schuster

Bright greeny gold; spicy, citrus and noble rot complexity on the nose; a rich, ample wine with a fine, defining acidity; a little touched by its new wood currently; intensely sweet, long, exciting and complex to taste; a beautifully sustained flavour, rich, taut, complex and vigorous; great generosity, but entirely without heaviness or excess, and with a splendid, powerfully aromatic finish. A most complete and classy aristocrat. 2017-40+
