Wine tasting notes

The complex, delicate nose reveals itself gradually, with a subtle blend of tropical fruit, menthol and an elegant oakiness. Ultimately, floral aromas dominate, but notes of fresh tropical fruit remain present in the background. The palate is initially very fresh, the butteriness from the barrel-ageing is immediately expressed, but not excessively. The wine then develops superb volume, completely filling the palate. The long finish returns to a delightful youthful acidity, with a hint of the menthol from the nose.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2018) - 90 to 92 pts

The 2018 R de Rieussec is composed of 58% Sémillon and 42% Sauvignon Blanc. It opens with notes of honey-drizzled apples, spiced pears and melon with touches of yuzu zest and white pepper. The palate is charged with vibrant citrus fruits and a wicked backbone of freshness, finishing long and mineral laced.


James Suckling (2018) - 91 to 92 pts

A tangy and dry white wine with sliced apples, lemons and light honey character. Medium body. Melon flavor. Lemon undertones.
