The Oddbins Take

We don’t like to name names but there are wines out there that, because of international trends, speculation or because weavers told us the bottle was dressed in invisible silks, are pricier than the quality would warrant.

Château Rieussec is not one of these wines. Made only in the years noble rot affects the grapes, a tiny proportion of juice is drawn from each of the dried grapes before extensive barrel aging to round off this powerful wine. The result is a golden coloured Sauternes with a warm, rich palate of orange, saffron, crème brûlée and marmalade, deliciously sweet and full-bodied yet textural; the experience of drinking this wine is incredibly decadent.
