Tasting Notes

Golden hue. Subtle confit fruit and roasted aromas. The palate is full, round and generous with botrytised, bitter notes on the finish adding freshness.

Score: 92

This has maple, bitter orange and singed almond notes, but there's good vivacity as well, with clementine and tangerine threads extending throughout. The lovely, unctuous finish is open and ready now. For fans of the richer style. Drink now through 2028.

Score: 90

James Molesworth, Wine Spectator Maturity: 2016-2028 01 January 2016

The second wine of Rieussec, the 2013 Carmes de Rieussec is a blend of 83% Semillon, 9% Muscadelle and 8% Sauvignon Blanc. It has a lovely lemon curd, apricot and vanilla-scented nose with modest vigor. The palate has an edgy entry, with touches of citrus peel infusing the viscous fruit, and a dash of spice toward the finish.

Score: 88 - 90
