Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

94 WS / 92 RP / 18 JR

Nectar-like if a bit on the sweet side, impressively complex, concentrated and focused. Deep gold, big, sweet and rich, with gobs of concentrated fig, brown sugar, butterscotch and oak flavor. A knockout. - Wine Spectator

Light golden with just the slightest tint of green, the 1983 Rieussec, from an excellent year for Sauternes, is certainly one of this property's greatest wines. Well structured with excellent acidity, and a deep, long, rich, full-bodied, viscous texture, this wine, despite the richness and power, is neither heavy nor cloying. It has gorgeous balance and a very long, lingering, spectacular finish. One of the great successes of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: Now-2005. Last tasted, 3/88. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Bright amber. The deepest wine in this collection. Aeration (decant this wine) revealed orange notes and notable acidity – quite open and evolved. Very long. Makes a big impression even if not very fine or subtle. Big, bold throat-warmer. Seems fully developed. Long and powerful – more alcohol than sweetness. - Jancis Robinson
