Grape Variety: 84.5% semillon, 11.5% sauvignon blanc and 4% muscadelle; 160 g/l residual sugar
Cellar Potential: 2014-2024
Old Bridge Rating: Rieussec is always a rich and hedonistic style. This is now at its peak
Press Reviews: Decanter Magazine: "Massive, with great transformed level of alcohol, useful when the sugar content is so high too, a monument of a wine, but a wait of 10 years at least will be necessary to do justice to its majestic power."
Jancis Robinson: "Yellow gold. Interesting depth and complexity. Springs out of the glass. Very big and round and yet refreshing. Great satin texture. How I'd imagine Climens. Rather nice saltiness on the finish." (18.5/20 points)
