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

Sauternes is a good area to purchase wine. I had this Château Rieussec with my club mates.
Remarkable for its yellow amber colour. Brisk scents of fresh lemons. Opulent with a full body.

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.

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.

Château Rieussec 1Er Cru Classé Sauternes 375ml 2008
Château Rieussec's best wine, in my opinion.
The Château Rieussec 1Er Cru Classé Sauternes 375ml had a dark yellow colour. Predominant aromas of white fruits. It showed a smooth and roasted taste.
We paired it with meat but I would have prefered to pair it with another dish.

Lovely colour. I was explained that this wine smells like acacia flower. Very long aftertaste.
Great with sushi.
Wine and friends always pairs very well.
