Tasting Notes

Pale lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Carmes de Rieussec is a little youthfully mute to begin, offering glimpses at lemon meringue pie, lime cordial and beeswax scents with touches of baking bread and marzipan. The palate is appealingly rich and packed with citrus and spice layers, finishing long and honeyed.

Score: 89/91Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate, April 2019

A pretty second wine of Rieussec with creamy, cooked pear and apple character. Some soufflé character, too. Medium body, medium sweet and a fresh finish.

Score: 90/91James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2019
