“R” de Rieussec is produced on the Château Rieussec estate, a Sauternes Premier Cru Classé. It is partly produced from the same vines as the Sauternes. This technique enhances the wine’s potential to age while preserving its freshness and the natural fruitiness from the grapes.TASTING NOTES:
Beautiful pale-yellow colour with youthful glints of green.
The nose is reserved before aeration, but already offers a glimpse of a very fresh wine. On aeration, the Sauvignon aromas emerge first. They are classic with a hint of exoticism. Then come more flowery notes of Sémillon. The oak is very well-integrated.
On the palate, the attack offers volume without being excessive and reveals a pleasant, tight structure. This is an R that will be remembered: simultaneously lively and delicate, with superb length!
