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.

At palto it is soft, creamy and with great persistence

It was served at a wedding.
Rieussec Sauternes 1Er Cru Classé 1/2 Flasche 375ml 2010
