Chateau Rieussec ler Sauternes, France

Characteristics
Grapes: Sémillon 90 - 95%, Muscadelle and Sauvignon 5-10%.
For several generations, Château Rieussec has been a leading name in Sauternes wines. As early as 1868, Charles Cocks remarked that “Beyond any of the others, Rieussec produces wines that are very similar to Yquem wines”.

Length of ageing in oak barrels: 18 to 26 months depending on the year, including 55% in new barrels.

Tasting notes
Strong colour. Very floral, vivid nose, light, well-integrated woodiness. The palate is fresh, elegant and complex with a lively, slightly spicy finish, and some notes of exotic fruit. Excellent length.
