Chateau Rieussec 2019

Description

Winemaker Notes

Watch when Jean-Sébastien Philippe, International Director of the iconic Domaines Baron de Rothschild appears in this tasting featuring the newly released 97 point - 2019 Château Rieussec. Jean-Sébastien and Michael Llodra, owner of Bordeaux wine bar, Chai Mica, join Wine.com host Gwendolyn Osborn to challenge the myth that Sauternes is purely a "dessert" wine and prove that it can be an exceptional and versatile food wine that both complements rich textures and contrasts with salty or spicy foods (think oysters, fried chicken and prosciutto!)


Tasting Note

Delicate golden color with soft green glints. Intense nose with tremendous aromatic richness. Initial notes of citrus zest are followed by lemon tart, and then toasted notes reminiscent of freshly baked brioche. The palate offers mandarin zest and candied orange, enlivened by a touch of star anise which underscores the wine’s aromatic freshness. Dense and rich, the palate has good length with a pleasant hint of bitterness on the finish.

It is only in Sauternes that botrytis can develop, giving Rieussec its unique richness. This noble rot meets our grapes to create a delicate osmosis that we reveal by harvesting each grape at the ideal moment. Once bottled, our wine starts its life cycle, drinkable from the earliest stage to the longest
