ABOUT THE WINE
Confiscated from the Carmelite monks during the French Revolution, Château Rieussec saw a series of owners over the subsequent centuries until it was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in 1984. Rigorous grape-selection, longer barrel-ageing and meticulous quality-control enhanced the reputation and prestige of the estate.

TASTING NOTES
Relatively delicate for Rieussec; honeysuckle, orange-peel, citrus-fruit, vanilla and blossom-honey. Medium-bodied, and wonderfully fresh.

FOOD PAIRING
Excellent with blue cheese and lighter deserts.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
An extremely successful vintage for Sauternes.
