Château Rieussec

Chteau Rieussec

Ref: A031509

1er Cru Classé Sauternes

A really huge Rieussec with amazing concentration yet with a mind-blowing freshness and complexity. The usual Rieussec 'weight' is omnipresent but there is an extra dimension of purity that is sometimes missing at this Rothschild property. The bouquet resonates with lime, cream and honey aromas and the palate is crammed full of spicy, textured creamy fruit with a supporting botrytis-induced acidity. A monumental wine that that we feel is probably the best Rieussec ever.
14.3% alc.

For several generations, Château Rieussec has been a leading name in Sauternes wines. As early as 1868, Charles Cocks remarked that “Beyond any of the others, Rieussec produces wines that are very similar to Yquem wines”.

Owned by the Barons de Rothschild of Château Lafite the château is next door to the hallowed ground of Yquem.

Rieussec's style is always one of intense power with an almost roasted richness on the palate. It produces very deeply coloured wines with great viscosity.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Azalais 2012
Vacqueyras Cuve Azalais 2012
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.


Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Deep coloured with a bouquet of ripe cherry fruit, this is a very approachable wine with the emphasis on ripeness and "crunchy" fruit with excellent balance.
