Château Rieussec has been a leading wine 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.

AGEING IN OAK BARRELS
18 to 26 months depending on the year, 50 to 55% in new barrels.

AVERAGE ANNUAL PRODUCTION
Varies a great deal depending on the vintage, but on average is about 6,000 cases (however,
none was made in 1977, 1993 and 2012).

TASTING NOTES:
Delicate golden color with soft green glints. Intense nose with tremendous aromatic richness.
Initial notes of citrus zest are followed by lemon tart, and then toasted notes reminiscent of
freshly baked brioche. The palate offers mandarin zest and candied orange, enlivened by a
touch of star anise which underscores the wine’s aromatic freshness. Dense and rich, the
palate has good length with a pleasant hint of bitterness on the finish.

14% ABV
