Tasting Note:

A blend of 83% Semillon and 17 % Sauvignon, which is a little more Sauvignon than usual, harvested between the 26th September and 12th October. Always a powerhouse Sauternes but this has to be one of the most finely-balanced Rieussecs for years. Rich notes of apricot jam and woody spices encircled by a distinct lemon and orange rind freshness. Concentrated but lively and juicy.
