*Barrel Tasting* Balanced and very spicy, with almond paste and apricot. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with a long, fruity, tangy finish. Layered and stylish. (Web Only—2008)
Tasted single blind against its peers. The Rieussec 2007 has a subtle nose of dried honey, pear, a touch of quince and crushed stone on the nose, the oak better integrated than last year. The palate is well-balanced with stem ginger and honeycomb on the entry. It is linear compared to its peers, there is no flourish on the finish as yet, but it has fine definition and hints of tangy marmalade and lemongrass that should become more accentuated with time.

Bright, pale yellow-gold. Aromas of very ripe peach, honey and vanilla are a bit youthfully disjointed. Sweet, supple and fat, currently showing more spice than fruit. Finishes broad and spicy, with a suggestion of minerality. (ST)
Mildly tangy nose with very well managed oak hardly perceptible but just giving it a nice little stiffening. Nectarine notes and this builds on the palate. Not much nose but satisfying food wine. I wonder whether the Rothschild arrows on the label manage to give the bottle cachet in China even though it contains white wine. Good persistence.
