Owned by the Domaines de Barons Rothschild Lafite since 1984, Château Rieussec has been a Premier Cru Classé of Sauternes since 1855. The château is recognized for the quality of its fresh and powerful sweet wines with beautiful substance, which become even more beautiful with the test of time. Respect for the environment is an essential part of the philosophy of this property. The harvest is manual, allowing the team to select only the most beautiful fruit, grape by grape. This fruit is then allowed to express itself through very authentic wines.

The vineyard - Located in the heart of the Sauternes appellation, Château Rieussec watches over 85 hectares of vineyards planted in sandy clay gravel soils. Here Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle grape varieties develop slowly until they reach an exceptional level of maturity that attracts the noble rot so famous in this appellation.

The wine - For the release of its 2019 vintage, Château Rieussec has chosen to break with the classic codes of Sauternes: while keeping with the identity of the property, which benefits from four centuries of know-how, the estate has transformed its first wine and infused it with a modern philosophy that respects nature. Thus, Rieussec has opted for a 95% recycled glass and a cork that allows the wine to be kept for many weeks and reused as a carafe or vase.

The vintage - The 2019 vintage is perfectly suited for this spirit of renewal. Indeed, this vintage will be remembered for the aromatic freshness of its wines, which contrasts with the typical profile of Sauternes while maintaining the soul of the appellation.

Vinification and ageing - The Rieussec 2019 aged for 18 to 26 months in barrels.

The blend - Sémillon (82%) and Sauvignon Blanc (16%) and Muscadelle (2%).
