Château Rieussec Magnum 2005

Perhaps the "most exciting" of all Sauternes wineries. Château Rieussec is located in the district of Fargues than immediate, eastern neighbor of Château d'Yquem. It went through in the last 200 highs and lows of a winery in this region and has been passed regularly at short intervals. With the acquisition of the winery by M. Albert Vuillier 1971, the quality improved dramatically. Unfortunately, he had to sell it again in 1984 for lack of funds. Thanks to the new owners, a group of investors - under the direction of Domaines Baron de Rothschild (Lafite), to Château Rieussec has established itself as a super-Second of the Sauternes region.

I had it with a birthday cake. I like sharing this fortified Armagnac with someone special.
Nice colour. It would have been better if it had been cooler than it was. Our fault.
