ABOUT THE WINE

Château Rieussec was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in 1984. Traditional Sauternes techniques are used and the harvests are carried out with selective pickings depending on the ripeness of the grapes and evolution of botrytis cinerea (noble rot). Les Carmes de Rieussec, Second wine from Château Rieussec, is produced from young vines of the estate.

TASTING NOTES

The wine gives off candied apricot, citrusy and white peach aromas enhanced by a light honey hint on the nose finish. The  wine offers an unctuous, quite ample and balanced palate, which finishes on a vibrant note.

FOOD PAIRING

Consider cheesecake of all kinds (no chocolate), almond tart, lemon tart, and custards. Also great with savoury dishes such as Roquefort or Livarot cheese and foie gras or terrine with caramelized onions. Herb-roasted poultry or spicy Asian are a good bet too.

FRIARWOOD SAYS

This an example on how great Sauternes can be super versatile when it comes to pairings.
