Over the centuries, Château Rieussec has changed owners several times until 1985 when it was bought by Baronss Domaine de Rothschild, which allowed him to go even further in the search for an increasingly high quality. The vineyards occupy one of the highest points in Sauternes, after those of Yquem, with a ghiaiso and calcareous soil. The yields of currently screws are less than 15 quintals per hectare. Sweet white wine, full bodied, fruity and spicy, aged at least 18 months in French oak barrels. From deep golden color presents a floral bouquet with fruity shades of peach, pear, green almond and apricot jam and a hint of spicy ginger cream. At palto it is soft, creamy and with great persistence

4 /5

In 2015, the climate of Bordeaux was warm and the rainfall varied greatly with, between our different properties in the region, differences of nearly 300 mm over the year
A recurrent phenomenon in recent years, the beginning of winter has been mild and dry and it is only at the end of January that the beneficial cold has arrived, accompanied by precipitation
The bud burst began at the beginning of April as usual and the vine then quickly developed thanks to the water reserves and the temperate climate
In June, the bloom was early and homogeneous, a promising indicator before harvest
Summer has seen the temperature often exceed 35 ° C at L'Evangile and Rieussec, where Lafite Rothschild and Duhart-Milon benefited from the influence of the ocean and the estuary

Everywhere, water stress was high, but the rains of August brought the freshness necessary for the veraison then to a perfect maturation
The ideal conditions were met during the harvest, to obtain the best of each terroir: the result is hopeful.

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.

Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite Château Rieussec Sauternes 2011
It's yellow, but almost amber. Smells like banana.This Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite Château Rieussec Sauternes is too sweet.
We drank it with appetizers.
I thought the Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite Château Rieussec Sauternes would be perfect for a romantic evening.
