Chateau Rieussec Carmes de Rieussec Sauternes 2014 (375ml)


''This rich, impressive wine is full of ripe fruit and balanced acidity. It has intensity, sweetness and botrytis rich enough to lend a dry core.'' 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

''The 2014 Carmes de Rieussec is a very pretty wine that can be enjoyed now. Candied lemon peel, coconut, pear, chamomile and white flowers meld together nicely in the glass. The Carmes shows the brighter profile that is characteristic of this early-harvested second wine from Rieussec, but with the textural breadth that is typical of the year. '' 91 Points, Vinous Media

''The dry pineapple and pear character with hints of honey and cream is impressive. Medium body, medium acidity and a spicy, delicious finish.'' 91 Points, James Suckling

''Seductive and poised, this builds in the glass with wonderful aromatics of honeysuckle, white flowers, apricot jelly and pineapple. Showing a silky texture, the wine yields flavors of crème brûlée, bananas foster, pineapple, and honey all taking shape. This continues to impress with its soft, round texture and wonderful balance through the finish.'' 90 Points, International Wine Report
