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 Rieussec release from 1986 has aged gracefully and blossomed to reveal a multitude of complex secondary notes. The nose is honeyed and opulent with aromas of smoky almonds, apricot, spice, butter and honeysuckle. Weighty, rich and sweet in the mouth, this wine is beautifully balanced by crisp acidity and a developing flavour profile that is layered, luxurious and long on the finish. Currently at its peak of maturity, this wonderful sweet wine would pair wonderfully with a number of dessert dishes, or is a delight to enjoy on its own.

£11.33 per 100.00ml
