K&L Notes

Always a fine property. Since 1984 when a majority of the interest was sold to the Domaines Barons de Rothschild, the quality has soared making them one of the top three in the appellation. In the nose, rich, ripe pineapple and waxy honey notes with a hint of coconut leap from the glass. On the palate, the wine is unctuous with good acidity and great depth of flavor and length. And 91 points Wine Advocate's Neal Martin: "The 1989 is a lovely Rieussec that seems to show a little better each time we meet. Here it has a slightly more precocious bouquet than previous example with a lifted botrytized element. Scents of marmalade and quince mingle with honey and peach, whilst the palate demonstrates good weight - viscous on the entry and little more conviction towards the finish that had hitherto been missing. I remain cautious about the 1989 Rieussec, but it is one to watch carefully over the next decade. Tasted November 2012." (Wine Journal, 3/2013)
