Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Rieussec 1er Cru Classe 2019


Lobenberg: Endlich wieder ein großer und vor allem feiner, eleganter Rieussec voller Harmonie. Und vor allem mit Spannung und Grip! Satte Grapefruit und Limette, Bitterorange, Salz, Kalkstein. Cremiger Mund, sahnig und ungeheuer charmant, Bratapfel mit Akazienhonig in Zitrus-Salz-Soße, eine Aromeneplosion. Ein Hauch Exotik mit Ananas, Mango und pfeffriger Papaya. Ganz großer Stoff! Best ever hier! 100/100


Jane Anson über: Chateau Rieussec 1er Cru Classe

-- Jane Anson: Expertly constructed, with luxuriously intense pineapple, mango and apricot pit flavours matched step for step by bitter orange peel, lime juice and tingling grated ginger. Sauternes doesn't always manage to deliver such a mouth-watering mix of satin texture set against pinpoint acidity, but the late harvest 2019 - botrytis arrived when the nights were cool - made for some exceptionally successful wines in the appellation, even if yields were tiny. This is a delicious Rieussec, full of personality, and its 120g/l residual sugar leaves its trace in texture rather than in weight. First year of organic certification. 96/100


Decanter über: Chateau Rieussec 1er Cru Classe

-- Decanter: Lovely noble rot aromas but quite modern in profile with freshness and energy. On the palate there is expressive and open flavours of honeyed lemon, orange rind and pineapple well wrapped in a viscous, rich, sumptuous and seductive layer of sweetness. Great acid backbone, not mouthwatering as such but just enough that it lifts the overall feeling so much then the structure comes in supporting the frame making you think this is a serious and super charming wine. Great texture also the flavours glide across the palate. Excellent intensity but also freshness. A great aperitif style to enjoy before a meal - serve cold and let the wine reveal more complexity and nuance as it warms and opens. A new, fun bottle was introduced for this vintage. Dark glass was used 'obliging you to pour it as you can't see the colour' says Saskia de Rothschild with a reusable cork stopper so it can be kept in the fridge and consumed in several sittings. Drinking Window: 2027 - 2045. 96/100


Parker über: Chateau Rieussec 1er Cru Classe

-- Parker: Pale lemon-gold in color, the 2019 Rieussec flaunts a delicately scented nose of fresh grapefruit, lemon curd, lime leaves and clover honey with wafts of jasmine, white truffles and nutmeg. The palate slowly builds, revealing layers of apple and citrus fruits with loads of savory accents, framed by refreshing acidity and a seductively oily texture, finishing on a lingering honey-nut note. 94-96/100

Mein Winzer


Das 1er Cru Rieussec liegt im Herzen der Appellation auf der zweithöchsten Erhebung (nach d’Yquem) und besteht aus einem einzigen, zusammenhängenden Weinberg – eine Seltenheit in Bordeaux.
