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.
87% Sémillon, 7% Sauvignon Blanc, 6% Muscadelle
Generous nose with jammy notes of white fruit, evolving towards bitter orange.
The attack is delicate, the wine then develops superb power with notes of fresh pineapple. The palate is full-bodied with well-integrated wood. Well-balanced and concentrated, the finish is long and lingering.
