The Winery

Château Rieussec

Château Rieussec

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.

Shocking

3 /5

A beautiful vivid colour. The nose perceives aromas of honey and pollen. A very well balanced white.
Château Rieussec wines are perfect with grilled or cooked prawns.
I enjoyed with a good friend of mine.
I bought Château Rieussec Blanc at Uvinum.

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.
