A bright and fruity with spicy, earth, dried fruit and pineapple aromas and flavors. Full and medium sweet. Wonderful finish. Second wine? This is almost too good.

The 2015 Carmes de Rieussec, the second wine from Rieussec, is delightful in this vintage. Orange peel, coconut and a host of tropical fruits are nicely delineated in this moderately sweet, refreshing Sauternes. Silky, perfumed and beautifully layered throughout, the Carmes is an ideal dessert wine for readers who find Sauternes too heavy or sweet. The Carmes is simple, uncomplicated and a real pleasure to taste. That's all there is to it.

The 2015 Carmes de Rieussec is a blend of 87% Semillon, 7% Sauvignon Blanc and 6% Muscadelle. It has a gorgeous lemon curd, honeysuckle and vanilla-scented bouquet that transcends what you consider to be a deuxième vin. The palate is very well balanced with a crisp line of acidity, very harmonious with fine weight and tension. This is a delightful Sauternes from the Rieussec team that should drink early, but clearly has the substance to age.
