Chateau Riuessec 2010

75cl / 14%

Extremely rich and bright, with lots of green fig, honey and apricot. Very lush and round, with some serious weight and power in reserve yet remarkably fresh.

Rieussec is always such a benchmark Sauternes and seems to deliver reliably year in, year out.

A rewarding wine, this would be a fine addition to any cellar.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Pale lemon-gold colored
Aroma: A pure and lifted bouquet with ripe peach, nectarine and honey, hints of shaved ginger poke their head above the surface with aeration. It is very subtle.

History of Chateau Riuessec

Château Rieussec is one of the richest and most exotic of all Sauternes, producing particularly good wines in the late 1980s and the mid 1990s. Rieussec has been owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild since 1985 and is located at one of the highest points of Sauternes in the village of Fargues where its vineyards border those of Château d`Yquem.

Rieussec’s 75 hectares of vineyards are planted with 89% Sémillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle. Yields are low and the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks and oak casks before being matured in oak barriques (70% new) for 18-24 months.

Rieussec produces a classic full-bodied Sauternes that is deep golden-yellow in colour and packed with lusciously sweet, honeyed fruits. Classsfied as a 1er Cru Classé, its best vintages rival those from d`Yquem.
