Fruity, with lemon, apricot and lilac on the nose. Full-bodied, with a lovely intensity and bright acidity. Long and elegant. The palate builds on the finish. Not the 2001 (Wine of the Year), but very good indeed.
The 2004 Rieussec has a very composed and generous bouquet with intense dried honey, quince and smoky notes that unfold nicely in the glass. The palate is ripe and sensual on the entry, the oak present but very well-integrated. There is good depth here, with touches of white pepper sprinkled over the harmonious finish. This is a very competent Rieussec that feels long and satisfying, although it does not possess the personality of say, de Fargues of Raymond-Lafon. This is a decent, workmanlike Rieussec. Drink now-2025.
