Balanced and very spicy, with almond paste and apricot. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with a long, fruity, tangy finish. Layered and stylish. (JS, Web Only—2008)
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)
The 2007 Rieussec is a blend of 87% Semillon, 4.5% Muscadelle and 8.5% Sauvignon Blanc picked between 13 September and 31 October. It has an almost Barsac-like bouquet with barley sugar joining the ginger and honeyed notes, quite powerful although I feel this is just going through a sullen patch at the moment. The palate is very pure and balanced with a wonderful seam of acidity that slices through the viscous botrytis fruit, quite spicy on the finish … . (NM)
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.
