Winemaker's Notes

(From 1990 Vintage) The 1990 Rieussec is more precocious and flattering than the more
highly rated 1988 and 1989, with its tropical fruit-scented nose, big, spicy,
rich, high alcohol flavors, and a fine underpinning of acidity giving
everything clarity and crispness. It is drinkable at an earlier age than the
1989, but it will last just as long.
(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate)

  • Decanter
    Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. A big rich wine, with lemon tart aromas, a plump, juicy palate, and perhaps a slight lack of purity and finesse. But the lush fruit and spiciness are hard to resist. Drink 2008-30.
