5 out of 5 starsReviewed on July 11, 2017

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.

Very focused."  94 Pts.
