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

Has a very cheerful colour. The 2016 taste was evident in the mouth.
A sweet that pairs well with moussaka.
