Bordeaux 2009 New Release: Rieussec Sauternes

Good as the 2009 Sauternes were, we felt the quality in the main was below that of 2001, not so with Ch. Rieussec. This was a truly stunning wine – easily the equal of the legendary 2001. Unanimously voted the Sauternes of the vintage by the L&W team, with the sole exception being Yquem. Very highly recommended.

2009 Château Rieussec, Cru Classé Sauternes
£318.00 per 6 bottle case in bond
£324.00 per 12-half bottle case in bond
A defined and elegant nose of candied lemon peel, honeysuckle and white flowers. Flavours of peach and the subtle botrytis notes of marmalade envelop the palate. This has a pleasing weight, cut through by a crisp dart of acidity and a mineral edge. Lovely poise and direction, very refined indeed. Drink: 2020-2035.
