Tasting Notes

Just bottled, the 2015 R de Rieussec shows just how attractive dry whites can be in the Sauternes region. Crisp, aromatic and refreshing, the 2015 is an ideal aperitif or summer white. Orchard fruit, candied lemon, white flowers and mint give the wine its brightness and verve. The 2015 is absolutely delicious.

Score: 90Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, April 2016

The 2015 R de Rieussec has a crisp, slightly reserved bouquet with green apple and gooseberry scents, a touch of cold stone in the background. The palate is fresh and vibrant with good depth, although it needs a little more personality to come through on the Zen-like finish.
