ROBERT PARKER RATING: 91
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The deep golden, almost amber color reminds me of the 1983 in its youth. Orange marmalade, creme brulee, browned butter, and smoke emerge from the relatively complex, attractive, and full-bodied 2000. Exhibiting tremendous density, good acidity, and loads of fruit and botrytis, it is a strong candidate for the wine of the vintage in Sauternes. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2018.
For several generations, Château Rieussec has been a leading name in Sauternes wines. As early as 1868, Charles Cocks remarked that “Beyond any of the others, Rieussec produces wines that are very similar to Yquem wines." A tiny yield, but a quality vintage. Indeed, the fine early harvest, with developed botrytis on ripe grapes, was unfortunately followed by rain and so could not produce noble wines. In the end, only the initial harvests were kept, which made this vintage the lowest volume since 1993 (there was no fine wine that year due to insufficient quantity). It has a deep and gold colour. Its complex and balanced bouquet has a sweet fragrance. This delicious wine also has the same concentrated and balanced expression on the palate.
