The Winery

Château Rieussec

Château Rieussec

IN THE 18TH CENTURY, the Rieussec estate belonged to the Carmes de Langon monks. The confiscation of the estate during the revolution led to its public sale around 1790 as an "object of national heritage" to Mr. Marheilhac, the period's owner of Château La Louvière at Léognan.

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.
