The Estate

In the 18th century, the Rieussec estate belonged to the Carmelite monks in Langon. The confiscation of the estate during the revolution led to its public sale around 1790 as a “object of national heritage” to Mr. Marheilhac, owner at that time of Château La Louvière in Léognan.
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.
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.
“R” de Rieussec is a dry white wine produced on the Château Rieussec estate. 20% of fermentation takes place in barrels. This technique enhances the wine’s potential to age, while preserving its freshness and the natural fruitiness from the grapes.

Blend

54% Sémillon, 46% Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes

Beautiful pale yellow colour with youthful glints of green. The nose presents tremendous aromatic intensity. Exotic fruit, mango and pineapple with subtile citrus notes . The oak from the barrel-ageing is well-integrated.
The palate immediately presents superb freshness. Flavours follow one another throughout the tasting, in particular fresh pear and notes of white flowers. Overall, the palate is characterized by length, balance and harmony, and a long aftertaste.
