Vinous: 93 Points
A wine of joy and pure pleasure, the 2015 Carmes de Rieussec is absolutely delicious. Rieussec’s second wine is bright and lifted, yet shows plenty of depth in its pineapple, orange peel, mint, jasmine and lightly honeyed notes. Although the Grand Vin gets most of the attention at Rieussec, the Carmes is truly superb in 2015 and well worth taking a look at.
Wine Advocate: 91 Points
Composed of 87% Sémillon, 7% Sauvignon Blanc and 6% Muscadelle, the 2015 Carmes de Rieussec has a pale to medium golden color and a lovely nose of lemon tart, orange marmalade and preserved apricots with hints of musk perfume and candied ginger. Medium to full-bodied, richly fruited and with compelling savory and earthy layers intermingled with the citrus preserves, it finishes with great freshness and length.
