1er Cru Classé - AOC Sauternes
Château Rieussec, is a wine-growing estate of Bordeaux, located in the commune of Fargues. Rieussec is a premier grand cru in the 1855 Sauternes AOC classification. The château Rieussec belongs to the famous group "Domaines Barons de Rothschild". The estate produces 85,000 bottles a year on 75 hectares of vines. The grape varieties are 90% Semillon, 7% Sauvignon and 3% Muscadelle. A great Sauternes wine.
Prestigious neighbourhood for this vintage: Château Yquem. Purchased in 1971 by Mr Albert Vuillier, the property has benefited since 1976 from his association with the Domaines Barons de Rothshild. However, it is from 1985 onwards that we can measure the weight of the financial effort made by this majority partner. Three superb vintages competed for primacy: 1988, 1989, 1990. Each has its own character. Time should decide between them. It should be noted that the wine has a tendency to take on an amber colour prematurely, which does not alter its quality in any way.
Top rated vintages by Robert Parker: 1945, 2009, 2015, 2014, 2010, 2005.
