Tasting Notes

Château Rieussec has been one of the leading wines in Sauternes for several generations. Ranked as a Premier Grand Cru in 1855, it is made with a subtle blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle grapes and is aged 18 to 26 months in oak before being bottled. Owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild since 1985, the wines produced are classically golden and viscous in appearance, and lusciously full-bodied in character. In top years the wines are deemed to rival those from the legendary Sauternes producer, Château d'Yquem. This half bottle release from 2003 is an incredibly forward and opulent expression of Rieussec taken from an exceptionally hot year in Bordeaux. Honeyed, exotic and pronounced on the nose, an inviting, hedonistic, array of tropical fruit, toast and spice aromas are suggested. Luscious, velvety, and intensely sweet, this wine is deeply flavoured with layers of complexity and perfectly balanced fresh acidity. A treat to drink on its own, this wonderful sweet wine would also pair wonderfully with a number of luxurious dessert dishes, or is equally a delight to enjoy on its own.
