<< R >> de Rieussec is produced on the Chateau Rieussec estate, a 1st growth Sauternes wine. A blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon, the palate is dominated by the Sauvignon, producing a rich and full-bodied wine with a lively finish.
Our Normal RRP:
The colour is already an attractive pale gold. Candied exotic fruits on the nose dominate over the primary aromas of the grape varieties. Firm on the palate, quite concentrated, then opening up to reveal soft hints of honey.
It is luscious deep gold, honeyed and fat with peachy botrytis tones, gingerbread, hazelnuts, fresh mint and eucalyptus on the palate. The Ancienne Cure is mini Mon-bee, marzipan, orange peel and spices.
As you would expect with a name like this, the peachy aromas jump out at you with honey and acacia skipping along behind. Unctuous and full-textured on the palate with notes of fruit pastilles and apricots.
