Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 02/05/2011

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.

Rich and "weighty" to smell; a very rich and very sweet balance; broad, open, gently spicy flavour, but not the complexity that this wine usually has. Intensely sweet of course, but just seems to lack real botrytis concentration, scope and projection; light length, mainly fruit. Attractively lush and opulent but a bit lacklustre in comparison with the best of the year. 2015-30? [M.Schuster, Bordeaux Mar/Apr 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.Mé.
