Wine Basics — Grape Varietals 101: Sémillon
Wine Basics — Grape Varietals 101: Viognier
Wine Spectator: "Balanced and very spicy, with almond paste and apricot. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with a long, fruity, tangy finish. Layered and stylish." 97 Pts.
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: "This Rieussec has a dense, quite oaky nose at the moment with good fruit concentration underneath. Honey, apple-blossom and peach. The palate is very well balanced with a lot of botrytis. One of the few really unctuous, weighty 2007 Sauternes with great length and persistency. Honey and citrus lemon on the finish. Very focused." 94 Pts.
