The freshness and aromatic richness of a Sauternes Second Wine

The estate

Chateau Rieussec is located in the prestigious Sauternes appellation, in the south of the Bordeaux region. This chateau is steeped in history and belonged to the Carmelite monks of Langon in the 18th century. It was then sold as "National Property" following the French Revolution. Classified as an 1855 Sauternes First Growth, Chateau Rieussec was acquired by the Rothschild family in 1984.

The vineyard

The estate’s Second Wine, Carmes de Rieussec, is a Sauternes wine that stems from a sandy-clay gravel terroir. The vineyard of Chateau Rieussec is situated on the border between Fargues and Sauternes and covers 93 hectares, thus making it one of the largest estates in the appellation.

Vinification and aging

Following the harvest, the grapes arriving at the winery are immediately pressed by plot. The must from each parcel is then put into barrels separately after settling in order to carry out the fermentation.

The blend

Semillon (89%)

Muscadelle (6%)

Sauvignon (5%).
