A great Rieussec from one of the best Sauternes vintages. Mindblowingly rich, yet elegant with pure, well-delineated layers of flavor.

"2005 Rieussec" 96/100 Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate

"Shows enticing aromas of toffee, cream, dried apricot and caramel. Full-bodied, very sweet and thick, with honey and caramel flavors. Long and rich, oozing with sweet, ripe fruit, this is like liquid candy. Best after 2016." 96/100 Wine Spectator Highly Recommended

"Tasted at Handford's 21st Anniversary tasting in Holland Park. To my surprise, I have never encountered this vintage of Rieussec before. It is certainly superior to the 1989 tasted alongside. The nose is very attractive with intense honeyed fruit interlaced with Devonshire fudge and coconut, the oak quite dominant. The palate has a sensual entry with crisp acidity, touches of honeycomb and orange peel interlaced with almond and vanilla that lead to a very caressing, lingering finish. This is a very fine Sauternes. Tasted October 2010" 94/100 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com/Wine Journal
