Château Rieussec is one of the richest and most exotic of all Sauternes, producing particularly good wines in the late 1980s and the mid 1990s. Rieussec has been owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild since 1985 and is located at one of the highest points of Sauternes in the village of Fargues where its vineyards border those of Château d`Yquem.Rieussec's 75 hectares of vineyards are planted with 89% Sémillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle. Yields are low and the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks and oak casks before being matured in oak barriques (70% new) for 18-24 months. read more...
Rieussec produces a classic full-bodied Sauternes that is deep golden-yellow in colour and packed with lusciously sweet, honeyed fruits. Classsfied as a 1er Cru Classé, its best vintages rival those from d`Yquem.

This Rieussec has a dense, quite oaky nose at the moment with good fruit concentration underneath. Honey, apple-blossom and peach. The palate is very well balanced with a lot of botrytis. One of the few really unctuous, weighty 2007 Sauternes with great length and persistency. Honey and citrus lemon on the finish. Very focused although perhaps it lacks the "soul" of some other 2007's here. Drink 2010-2025. Tasted April 2008.
