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.

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.

Château Rieussec 1Er Cru Classé Sauternes 375ml 2010
Pale yellow with coppery nuances. Exotic scents of lemon. Delicious aftertaste.
It is better not to pair this with food, as otherwise its fabulous taste might not be appreciated adequately.
It was served at a wedding.

Rieussec Sauternes 1Er Cru Classé 1/2 Flasche 375ml 2010
I do not know where I bought it.
A dark yellow . It brought back neat memories of daffodil. Full bodied, good acidity, as all Bordeaux.
