The 2010 Rieussec was missing a little intellect when I tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle it has become a contender for the finest Sauternes of the vintage. It is blessed with a pure and lifted bouquet with ripe peach, nectarine and honey, hints of shaved ginger poke their head above the surface with aeration. It is very subtle. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, perfectly judged acidity and convincing harmony. This is a sophisticated Sauternes with superb mineralite and outstanding persistency. I will confess that I pinned this as “Yquem” and was both shocked and pleased when its identity was revealed. Go buy. Drink 2016-2035. eRobertParker.com.April, 2014

Sporting 140gms/L residual sugar, the 2010 Rieussec displays impressive clarity on the nose, with fresh pineapple, grapefruit and a touch of lime flower, and tangible minerality. The palate has that “Tropicana” vibe with guava, almond and pineapple that slightly obfuscates the terroir towards the finish. This is a highly enjoyable, comparatively rich 2010 Sauternes, but without the intellect of some of the finest examples of the vintage. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate May 2011

Extremely rich and bright, with lots of green fig, honey and apricot. Very lush and round, with some serious weight and power in reserve. Remarkably fresh now. Tasted non-blind. —J.M. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Intense nose with strong botrytis influence. Pure and rich though not the most monumental by a long way. And a little bit sticky, and astringent, on the end. All the ingredients are there but in completely embryonic form. RS 141 g/l, Ta 3.9 g/l. 14.2% Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Some oaky, smoky elements dominating the fruity, juicy ones, but so impressive in the mouth. Great volume, great concentration, bags of refined and complex flavours, great length, and more Sauternes-like this time than Riesling. Drink 2020-2050. (18.5 points) Michel Bettane, decanter.com

The 2010 Rieussec offers a beguiling nose of marmalade, candied orange peel and honey, and on the palate a brilliant clarity of fruit despite the intense sugar levels and full body. This is a gorgeous and generous Sauternes with great depth and length and amazing layers of flavour. Jeannie Cho Lee MW asianpalate.com

A very quiet nose gives nothing away. The palate has lots of marzipan and bitter marmalade, making it a little bitter on the finish with alcohol not quite fully integrated. Not bad, nowhere near, just needs some time.
