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.

Good color. It smells like banana. Unfortunately it was bitter.
We use it between appetizers and entrees.
Recommend 100-100.
