The second wine of Château Rieussec is selected from the same basis as the great wine. Its permanent characteristic is a beautiful aromatic amplitude with a dominant citrus palette.

The name Carmes de Rieussec refers to the Carmelite monks of Langon, owners of the Rieussec estate in the 18th century.

Appellation
: Sauternes
[AOP - Protected Designation of Origin]

Fermentation: in two vats - the traditional vat room made up of large oak vats and the modern vat room made up of stainless steel vats

Tasting notes

Well supported golden yellow color. Beautiful shine. On the nose, the aromatic expression is powerful. This is a characteristic of this great vintage of Bordeaux white. The wine is fresh and pure with citrus, tangerine, and then candied melon notes. The attack is elegant and beautifully light before the wine quickly finds its full amplitude in the mouth. Held by its good acidity, it always remains very fresh. The finish is harmonious and without heaviness, well supported by a fair level of liquor. [lafite.com]

This white wine gives a smooth, charming and balanced sweetness and freshness. Fruity and citrusy notes. Lovely goldenish liquid for dessert.
