Description

The refinement and richness of an environmentally friendly Sauternes wine

The estate

Owned by the Domaines de Barons Rothschild Lafite since 1984, Château Rieussec has been poised among the finest Sauternes Premiers Crus Classés since 1855. The château is renowned for the quality of its sweet wines, which are both fresh and powerful, and evolve beautifully over time. Respect for the environment is an essential part of the estate’s philosophy. Thus, the grapes are harvested by hand, allowing the vineyard’s most beautiful fruits to be picked one by one and to truly express themselves through an array of utterly authentic wines.

The vineyard

Château Rieussec produces fine Sauternes wines from an 85-hectare vineyard that rests upon soils composed of sandy-clay gravel. The Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle grape varieties slowly blossom until they reach an exceptional level of maturity which leads to the appellation’s infamous noble rot.

The wine

Since the 2019 vintage, Château Rieussec has embarked on a transformative journey towards a more modern philosophy that respects nature.

The 2020 Château Rieussec wine is presented in a 96% recycled glass bottle, with an innovative cork design that helps to preserve the wine for many weeks, enabling the bottle to be repurposed as a decanter or a vase.

The packaging is also evolving, with a compact kraft cardboard box that allows for the sustainable transportation of 4 bottles of this Sauternes wine.

Vinification and ageing

Château Rieussec 2020 was aged for 16 to 24 months in barrels.

The blend

Semillon (90%)

Sauvignon (8%)

Muscadelle (1%).

Food and wine pairing

Rieussec 2020 will lend itself beautifully to your aperitifs and appetizers at the beginning of a meal. Its warm character will complement an array of sharing platters and small dishes.
