Château Rieussec 1982

Château Rieussec 1982 was a 1st Grand Cru Classé of Sauternes, a great sweet white wine from the Bordeaux vineyards. This 1982 vintage is known to be an exceptional vintage for red Bordeaux wines in general but it is less successful for sweet white wines of Sauternes and Barsac. After a great summer and sufficient moisture in September for the development of botrytis, heavy rains have flooded the vineyard in October and destroyed botrytis. This is only a small part of the grapes harvested before the rains which could offer a satisfactory level of quality. Château Rieussec, 1982 is still a great Sauternes wine offering in this vintage a great aromatic richness. Visit our Guide 1982 vintage to learn more about the best wines of 1982 and the best names. The Golden Bottle offers wines in old vintages as a gift: choose a bottle of wine in our 1982 collection and offer the vintage of the year of birth of a relative or a landmark year. Also find our selection of old vintage wines of Sauternes and Barsac.

Rieussec (Domaines Barons de Rothschild) 1982

Has a very cheerful colour. A wine with good body.
I think the best pairing would be with meat.
The fortified from Sauternes is a wine of character.

I drunk a little and a few days later it was vinegary.
Is 100% recommendable.
