Tastings Notes: Fresh, vibrant, and floral, the honey-coated apricots, roasted pineapple, candied orange rind, lemon curd, caramel, and vanilla nuances already shine through in the nose and on the rich, lusciously, sweet, vivacious, racy palate.
About the Winery:Château Rieussec is one of the richest and most exotic of all Sauternes, producing particularly good wines in the late 1980s and the mid 1990s. Rieussec has been owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild since 1985 and is located at one of the highest points of Sauternes in the village of Fargues where its vineyards border those of Château d`Yquem. Rieussec's 75 hectares of vineyards are planted with 89% Sémillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle.
