Chateau Rieussec 2015, Golden yellow colour with superb brightness, beginning to tend towards amber. The Rieussec 2015 is rich and full-bodied, the nose has already opened up and is very expressive, with aromas of yellow fruit, peaches, cooked pears and candied apricot. The wood is well-integrated. Pleasant notes of vanilla have a harmonizing effect. After a subtle, delicate attack the wine reveals itself more intensely on the mid-palate. It is fresh and develops excellent aromatic intensity, gradually gaining in power. The finish is very long, revealing remarkable depth and purity, with notes of apricots and prunes.
