The 2013 Rieussec is a blend of 96% Semillon and 4% Sauvignon Blanc picked between 26 September and 31 October. It has a simple, slightly resinous bouquet, a little more malic than usual. The palate is better than the nose, well balanced and harmonious with brioche and honeycomb-tinged fruit. It is so pleasant that you wish the aromatics would pull up their socks. Drink over the next 15 years or so. I wager that this a vintage destined to be outshone by the 2012. Tasted April 2016.
