LES CARMES DE RIEUSSEC Second wine of Ch. Rieussec 2017 Futures

Second wine of Rieussec, created in 2002. Expressive and seductive - flowers, white peach, honey - on a body that is half sweet but very elegant (terroir obliges). The Sauternes affair, its market price being even lower than its production cost!

Dupont (Le Point) : 14/20 « Bouche douce, pas mal de liqueur, gourmand, assez riche en liqueur, pas très nerveux mais aromatique. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 90-93/100 « Fresh and light on its feet, with notable vibrancy, the Carmes hits all the right notes. The balance here is simply unreal, especially for a second wine. »
Martin (Vinous) : 89-91/100 « The palate is not as viscous as recent vintages that I have tasted, but well balanced with a keen thread of acidity that keeps the finish on its toes. This is a lighter Carmes de Rieussec. »
