R DE RIEUSSEC - SAUVIGNON BLANC/SEMILLON - BORDEAUX - 2018

Château Rieussec has been owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild since 1985. So, one could consider this the Château Lafite Rothschild of dry white Bordeaux. Ranked as a Premier Grand Cru in 1855, in top years Rieussec’s Sauternes can rival those of the legendary Château d'Yquem. But just like their prestigious neighbour, they make a fabulous and rare dry white that slips under-the-radar due to all eyes being on the sweet wine.

Château Rieussec has been owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild since 1985. So, one could consider this the Château Lafite Rothschild of dry white Bordeaux. Ranked as a Premier Grand Cru in 1855, in top years Rieussec’s Sauternes can rival those of the legendary Château d'Yquem. But just like their prestigious neighbour, they make a fabulous and rare dry white that slips under-the-radar due to all eyes being on the sweet wine.


R de Rieussec comes from the same vines used to make the Sauternes. 20% of the Sémillon and Sauvignon are fermented in barrels adding a little cream and spice to the crisp apple and pear flavours, tangy yuzu, honey, beeswax, mango, pineapple, hay, sea salt and white pepper. The almost dessert-wine-richness is kept in check by a lively seam of acidity that will keep you reaching for another sip, and another…


Powerful, harmonious nose with notes of citrus, mango, and other exotic fruit. The direct, energetic attack on the palate presents the same exotic, fresh character. The wine presents plenty of volume and good harmony. The buttery notes from the barrel-ageing have a definite presence and will quickly become integrated to give the wine more complexity. The finish is backed up by a pleasant acidity.
