Description of Carmes de Rieussec 2008
Carmes de Rieussec 2008 (Muscadelle, Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc)
- Nose: Aromas of candied apricot, citrus and peach tilefish accompanied by a touch of honey. A scent that deserves to be enjoyed for a while.
- Mouth: High stickiness in the palate, breadth and balance culminating in a touch of great vivacity.
VINTAGE 2008: Spring frost affected the quantities of grapes and yields. August was benevolent in terms of weather and the end of summer was marked by moderate temperatures. September was warm and sunny, allowing the berries to reach perfect ripeness.
How to serve
IN THE 18TH CENTURY, the Rieussec estate belonged to the Carmes de Langon monks. The confiscation of the estate during the revolution led to its public sale around 1790 as an "object of national heritage" to Mr. Marheilhac, the period's owner of Château La Louvière at Léognan.More about the Winery
