Product Description

"This is very spicy and full of botrytis with a medium to full body, apple, pear and hints of lemon. Medium sweet and has an effect of being dry at the finish." James Suckling 92-93 Points

"Lemon confit, white flowers and mint are all laced throughout the 2017 Carmes de Rieussec. Fresh and light on its feet, with notable vibrancy, the Carmes hits all the right notes. The balance here is simply unreal, especially for a second wine. Picking a bit earlier and an increased emphasis in freshness is felt throughout the Rieussec range, but it is especially felt in the Carmes, a mid-weight, super-finessed wine that offers tons of depth while also staying light on its feet." Vinous 90-93 Points

"Ripe and honeyed, this is already delicious. It's light as a vintage but has fine marmalade and apricot flavors which make it accessible for short-term enjoyment." Wine Enthusiast 90-92 Points
