Description

The metamorphosis of Rieussec: spotlight on a modern and environmentally friendly Sauternes

The producer

Owned by the Domaines de Barons Rothschild Lafite since 1984, Chateau Rieussec has been a Premier Cru Classe of Sauternes since 1855. The chateau is recognized for the quality of its fresh and powerful sweet wines with beautiful substance, which become even more beautiful with the test of time. Respect for the environment is an essential part of the philosophy of this property. The harvest is manual, allowing the team to select only the most beautiful fruit, grape by grape. This fruit is then allowed to express itself through very authentic wines.

The vineyard

Located in the heart of the Sauternes appellation, Chateau Rieussec watches over 85 hectares of vineyards planted in sandy clay gravel soils. Here Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle grape varieties develop slowly until they reach an exceptional level of maturity that attracts the noble rot so famous in this appellation.

The wine

For the release of its 2019 vintage, Chateau Rieussec has chosen to break with the classic codes of Sauternes: while keeping with the identity of the property, which benefits from four centuries of know-how, the estate has transformed its first wine and infused it with a modern philosophy that respects nature. Thus, Rieussec has opted for a 95% recycled glass and a cork that allows the wine to be kept for many weeks and reused as a carafe or vase.

The vintage

The 2019 vintage is perfectly suited for this spirit of renewal. Indeed, this vintage will be remembered for the aromatic freshness of its wines, which contrasts with the typical profile of Sauternes while maintaining the soul of the appellation.

Vinification and aging

The Rieussec 2019 aged for 18 to 26 months in barrels.

The blend

Semillon (82%) and Sauvignon Blanc (16%) and Muscadelle (2%).

Food and wine pairing

The Rieussec 2019 is the ideal wine for an aperitif and small appetizers at the beginning of a meal. Its warm character lends itself particularly well to dishes or small plates meant to be shared.

Service and keeping

For an optimal tasting, the property recommends that you serve Rieussec 2019 at 6 degrees.
