A really huge Rieussec with amazing  concentration yet with a mind-blowing freshness and complexity. The usual Rieussec 'weight' is omnipresent but there is an extra dimension of purity that is sometimes missing at this Rothschild property. The bouquet resonates with lime, cream and honey aromas and the palate is crammed full of spicy, textured creamy fruit with a supporting botrytis-induced acidity. A monumental wine that that we feel is probably the best Rieussec ever.
