Reviews
Wine Spectator - 88-91 See more...
Plump and open, offering green plum, nectarine and coconut notes, with a round, easy feel through the plantain-tinged finish. Tasted non-blind. Score range: 88-91
James Suckling - 88 See more...
This is a pretty, fresh white with light sweetness and brightness. Medium body and good fruit. As the winemaker said at Rieusssec: ‘It’s a good quality wine to show what we can do in a difficult year’. Second wine of Rieussec. First wine now made in 2012.
