The Estate

For the 1855 classification, M. Mayne was the owner of the estate. The quality of the Rieussec soil earned its ranking as a first growth Sauternes and Barsac. After that date, Rieussec’s history involves many changes of owners and finally Château Rieussec was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in 1984. The estate then consisted of 110 hectares, 68 hectares of which were vines. To enhance Château Rieussec’s potential, rigorous measures were implemented, including meticulous sorting of the grapes and fermenting in barrels, which provides a much finer selection for the blending of the Grand Vin.

Blend

86% Sémillon, 14% Sauvignon

Tasting Notes

Golden yellow colour with superb brightness, beginning to tend towards amber.
Rich and full-bodied, the nose has already opened up and is very expressive, with aromas of yellow fruit, peaches, cooked pears and candied apricot. The wood is well-integrated. Pleasant notes of vanilla have a harmonizing effect.
After a subtle, delicate attack the wine reveals itself more intensely on the mid-palate. It is fresh and develops excellent aromatic intensity, gradually gaining in power. The finish is very long, revealing remarkable depth and purity, with notes of apricots and prunes.
