The 2015 Rieussec is wonderfully polished, nuanced and, dare I say it - restrained - in this vintage. An exotic mélange of apricot pit, peach, white flowers, mint and pineapple make a strong first impression, but it is the wine's overall feel that is most impressive. The 2015 is an especially finessed Rieussec. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Rieussec, a blend of 86% Semillon and 14% Sauvignon Blanc, was picked over five tries through the vineyard between 9 September and 27 October. "We had a bit of frost towards the end and 10% was harvested afterwards. The quality was affected and this was put into the second wine," winemaker Eric Kohler informed me. This year the grand vin constitutes between one-third and one-fourth of the total crop. It has a fragrant bouquet, of honey, white almond and peach, that is disarmingly seductive. The palate is refined and poised: a lovely thread of acidity here, with a keen mineral-laden finish that leaves the mouth tingling with pleasure. This is a top-tier Rieussec that hits all the right buttons. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2055

Not that dark in colour - yet. Very sweet nose with great creamy texture. Big and brawny but it knows what it's doing. Pretty high alcohol. Some savoury notes. Very confident. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2027-2050

Delicate aromas and flavours of hibiscus and peony, plus orchard fruit and honey. Elegant, fresh, juicy and vibrant. One of the more refined Sauternes of the vintage. Apr 2016, Ian D'Agata, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2020-2030

“I’m delighted with this,” winemaker Charles Chevalier enthused, and so he should be, for this is a superb Sauternes. Rich, exotic and concentrated with nearly 150 grams of sugar, supported by oak and acidity. Pineapple, citrus and pear flavours are beautifully entwined here.
