Chateau Rieussec Grand Cru Sauternes 2007 (Magnum)

From the owners of First Growth Lafite-Rothschild, Château Rieussec has been one of the leading wines in Sauternes for several generations. Ranked as a Premier Grand Cru in 1855 this is a classic full-bodied Sauterne full of sublime, sweet, honeyed fruits. The 2007 Rieussec is a blend of 87% Semillon, 4.5% Muscadelle and 8.5% Sauvignon Blanc picked between 13 September and 31 October.

Very bright, golden color. Very candied nose with delicious notes of figs and apricots. Full-bodied and fatty in the mouth with intense notes of candied fruit and excellent length.

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.

Winespectator / James Suckling (94)

Balanced and very spicy, with almond paste and apricot. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with a long, fruity, tangy finish. Layered and stylish.
