The Estate

Les Carmes de Rieussec is the second lable wine of Château Rieussec, Grand Cru Classé of Sauternes. The wine is selected and made according to the same standards as the first wine. Its character consistently reveals a beautiful aromatic range dominated by citrus flavours. Carmes de Rieussec’s name is a reference to the Carmelite monks in Langon, who owned the Rieussec estate in the 18th century.
An excellent value for money.

Blend

94% Semillon, 3% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle

Tasting Notes

Bright golden yellow colour.
The nose presents powerful aromatic expression. The wine is fresh and pure, with notes of citrus fruit, tangerine and then candied melon. The attack is elegant with a pleasant lightness, the wine then quickly gains substantial volume on the palate. Supported by a good level of acidity, it remains very fresh. The finish is harmonious, with no heaviness and just the right amount of sweetness.
Serve between 8 and 10°C
