Château Rieussec

Château Rieussec

Proudly guarding the entrance to the appellation Sauternes, Château Rieussec enjoys prestige in more ways than one. Its origins date back to the 18th century when it belonged to the monks of the Carmelites of Langon, and it was sold as national property during the French Revolution.

The Château Rieussec was consecrated First Grand Cru Classé during the classification of Bordeaux wines formalized in 1855 for the Paris World's Fair.

It was in 1984 that it was acquired by the Domaines Baron de Rothschild. In terms of innovation, the search for excellence and precision in the cellar as well as in the vineyard, and respect for the environment, nothing has ever been left to chance to make Domaine and its wines shine.

The Château Rieussec is based on a vineyard of 85 hectares of vines planted on extremely qualitative soils of sandy clay gravel. The grape varieties are 81% Semillon, 17% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle. The wines are aged for 18 to 26 months in French oak barrels of which 80 to 100% is new wood.

The property also produces a Second wine, Carmes de RieusSec.

The Château Rieussec delivers a unique expression of the Sauternes vineyard, thanks to its floral and yellow and white-fleshed fruit aromatic expression, elegance, freshness and longevity.

Description Carmes de Rieussec 2017.

Presenting a very bright straw-yellow color with golden highlights, it reveals intense flavors of ripe eXOtic fruits such as pineapple and mango on the nose.

In Second plan appear apricot but also subtle hints of honey.

A real gourmand. When tasted, the wine shows itself to be very rich and unctuous.

There's plenty of roundness in the mid-palate, which coats the fruity aromas.

The velvety, soft texture carries us through to the slightly acidic finish, which balances out the sweetness of the mid-palate.
