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
Right at the middle of its optimal drinking period, the beautiful marmalade  fruit character along with tart lemon meringue and Christmas spices of cinnamon and clove. On the palate the quince marmalade note creates a perfect marriage with the luscious baked apple and creamy vanilla yogurt.

FOOD PAIRING
Panna Cotta with peach compote, Almond white chocolate mousse as well as hard cheeses such as Manchego Viejo & Matured Stilton pair superbly.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
This wine spent extra time in the barrel to tame the effects of the warm vintage.
