About Carmes de Rieussec 2014 Sauternes, Hlf. Btl. 375ml

Half Bottle 375ml
Grand Cru Sauternes estate Chateau Rieussec is owned by the Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite). This is Chateau Rieussec’s second wine. It is selected according to the same standards as the first wine. Its character consistently reveals a beautiful aromatic range dominated by citrus flavors. Carmes de Rieussec’s name is a reference to the Carmelite monks in Langon, who owned the Rieussec estate in the 18th century.

This wine from the excellent 2014 vintage is a blend of botrytis affected grapes, 91% Semillon 5% Sauvignon and 4% Muscadelle. The wine aged in oak barrles for 18 months.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 93 points saying "This rich, impressive wine is full of ripe fruit and balanced acidity. It has intensity, sweetness and botrytis rich enough to lend a dry core. Drink from 2022."
