2016 Château Rieussec 'Les Carmes de Rieussec' Sauternes


Château Rieussec’s second wine is selected according to the same standards as the first.

Carmes de Rieussec’s name is a reference to the Carmelite monks in Langon, who owned the Rieussec estate in the 18th century.

Tasting Note: The colour is a beautiful bright, pale yellow, with glints of green indicating the wine’s youth. The nose is already intense and reveals notes of tropical fruit such as mango and pineapple. There are still some well-integrated oaky notes from the barrel ageing. The attack is subtle and elegant with a beautiful liveliness that very much characterizes the vintage. Superb volume on the mid-palate. The wine remains balanced and consistent through to the finish, which reveals a very mild sweetness with lightly roasted notes evoking caramel.

Origin: Bordeaux, France

Blend: Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadelle
