    2014 Sauternes, Second vin du Chateau Rieussec, Bordeaux.

    The 2014 Carmes de Rieussec is the Second vin du Chateau Rieussec and was selected on the same basis as the Grand Vin. This wine comes from the prestigious Sauternes appellation. The name Carmes de Rieussec is a reference to the monks of Carmes de Langon who were the proprietors of the estate in the 18ths century. This 2014 vintage blend is dominated by Semillon, followed by Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle.

    The 2014 Carmes de Rieussec offers a relatively dense nose, composed of acacia honey and flower, enhanced by woody hints. The palate is ample, generous and well-balanced. The very sweet finish is typical of the wines from this Sauternes terroir.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The Carmes de Rieussec 2014 is a blend of 92% Semillon and 4% each of Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc. It has a very pure and honeyed bouquet that demonstrates superb intensity. The palate is unctuous on the entry with a touch of ginger, plenty of botrytised fruit but just missing the persistence on the finish that cuts away a little swiftly, just as the wine is getting into its stride. Still, this should be a capable deuxième vin.
