VINTAGE 1999: Year early forcing teams to keep a fast throughout the period of growth rate. Disease risks were always present due to the alternation of intense heat and high humidity. The harvest of grapes licorosas first began on 31 August, with very good concentration. Selections clusters between 4 and 15 October was then resumed. The magnificent and very high levels very quickly forced to harvest.
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
