Château Rieussec

O vinho apresentado poderá apresentar sujidade e rótulos danificados que estão de acordo com a sua idade. A Garrafeira Nacional obriga-se a armazenar todos os vinhos à temperatura e humidade correcta mas opta sempre por manter o aspecto visual inerente à idade dos mesmos. Geralmente selecionamos as marcas/regiões que normalmente fazem boa figura em provas de vinhos velhos. Porém, o vinho é um organismo vivo que como outros está exposto ao tempo e ainda que dentro de uma garrafa os aromas estão sujeitos a diferentes evoluções. Assim, a Garrafeira Nacional não se pode responsabilizar pela qualidade do vinho, visto tratar-se de um vinho velho. A nossa recomendação passa por abrir e deixar arejar a garrafa previamente pois ajudará a libertar os aromas naturais do vinho depois de tantos anos fechado. Evite decantar o vinho poderá ser uma operação demasiado agressiva para os vinhos velhos.

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

4/5

the Muscadelle has a very shutdown color. Roasted flavours.
To this sweet would have suit better a softer meat.
That sweet is perfect for special occasions.

Château Rieussec Bordeaux 2012
Its aromas remind me of acacia flowers. Very dense, unctuous.
This Bordeaux has a complex structure.
