Tasting Notes

Robert Parker ranks the 1980 vintage of Sauternes and Barsac as "Above Average to Excellent." He also has praise for the winery: "As one approaches the heart of the Sauternes appellation, Chateau Rieussec and its prominent look-out tower can be spotted on one of the highest hillsides. The Rieussec vineyards, spread across the hillsides of Fargues and Sauternes overlooking the left bank of the Garonne, have the highest altitude after those of d'Yquem. Surprising for a Bordeaux property, the entire vineyard is one single unit. Rieussec has always had an outstanding reputation, but there is no doubting that after its acquisition by Albert Vuillier in 1971, the quality rose, largely because of the increase in new oak and the more frequent passes through the vineyard to harvest only heavily botrytised grapes ..."
