Rich, smooth and liqueur-like wine which finishes on fruity and light notes.Aromas are still discreet, with subtle wooden notes.
Blend: 86% Semillon, 12% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Muscadelle

"Tasted single blind against its peers. The Chateau Rieussec 2008 should become an excellent Sauternes for the vintage. It has a floral bouquet with peach, tinned apricot and a touch of marmalade, all with fine delineation, and touches of lemon curd developing with aeration.
The palate is mellifluous on the entry, with great depth and a luscious, vanillary note with hints of orange peel, marmalade and quince towards the long finish. Excellent."
