Tasting Note:

2015 Rieussec is a wine of considerable richness, the nose displaying a sultry swathe of botrytis notes, sweet dried apricots and spun sugar. On the palate the dry extract is palpable, giving the wine a density and structure around which flavours of raisin, dried fig and acacia honey are draped. Opulent and grown up. A blend of 86% Semillon and 14% Sauvignon Blanc – harvested up to the end of October.
