Robert Parker 91 - 93 points. "The 2008 Rieussec has a lifted, honeyed, slightly petrolly nose with great definition and lift. Touches of white flowers and white peach/honeysuckle develop with further aeration. The palate has a vibrant orange and mandarin flavored entry, very good balance, nicely poised with touches of vanilla inflecting the viscous, honeyed fruit on the finish. Classy but the oak obfuscates this Rieussec at the moment."
Jancis Robinson 17 points. "Intense orange and apricot botrytis flavours with lots of spice on the tip of the tongue. Creamy depth and fine fresh length. Very pure to the end. Rich with lots of pleasure. (JH) "
