About

93

"The 2017 R de Rieussec is a stunning wine that melds together the richness of Sémillon with the vivacity of Sauvignon, with a smattering of tropical accents that give the R its distinctive personality. Passion fruit, mint, pineapple white flowers, apricot and orange confit are some of the many nuances that give the R its alluring personality. In 2017, the R is absolutely delicious. Don't miss it."

90-92 Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Composed of 53% Sémillon and 47% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2017 R de Rieussec simply sings of ripe peaches, pink grapefruit and lemon curd with touches of elderflowers, honeysuckle and straw. The palate is medium-bodied and packed with zingy stone fruit and citrus layers, supported by a wicked backbone of freshness, finishing long and minerally."

"The dry white from Rieussec, the 2017 R de Rieussec is close to equal amounts Sémillon and Sauvignon. It has lots of white grapefruit, citrus, and some saline-like minerality to go with a ripe, medium-bodied, vibrant style on the palate. It’s complex, with vibrant acidity and notable elegance, and my money is on it drinking nicely for upwards of a decade."
