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.

4 /5

Very light flavour. Smells really good, like banana and lychees.A very well balanced white.
A wine to be paired with "Tapas".
We drank it at a meeting with friends.

Me and my friends always order this wine a for dinner.
Has a strong colour. The aromas of white flowers dominate. This white has good body.
Good wine from Château Rieussec, it pairs very well with Chinese food.
