Wine EnthusiastThis rich, impressive wine is full of ripe fruit and balanced acidity. It has intensity, sweetness and botrytis rich enough to lend a dry core. Drink from 2022.

Wine SpectatorA rounded, slightly soft style, with an almond cream note draping over the marmalade, glazed peach and mango flavors. The almond cream element takes over on the broad finish. Drink now through 2026. 6,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe Carmes de Rieussec 2014 is a blend of 92% Semillon and 4% each of Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc. It has a very pure and honeyed bouquet that demonstrates superb intensity. The palate is unctuous on the entry with a touch of ginger, plenty of botrytised fruit but just missing the persistence on the finish that cuts away a little swiftly, just as the wine is getting into its stride. Still, this should be a capable deuxième vin.
