Chateau Rieussec Carmes de Rieussec Sauternes 2018, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Bordeaux, France


Excellent white wine from the Sauternes appellation in Bordeaux. It is a blend of 89% Sémillon, 6% Muscadelle and 5% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are pressed as soon as they arrive at the winery. After settling, the musts are transferred to new barrels for fermentation. Grapes from each plot are pressed and fermented separately. At the end of fermentation, the wines are kept on the lees and stirred regularly until mid-December. After a resting period, the wines are racked and blended before being returned to the barrels to age for about 12 months.

Beautiful sparkling gold colour. The nose is already surprisingly subtle. The barrel-ageing is still present but blends perfectly with notes of apricot and candied melon. The attack is light, but the wine then develops volume and gradually fills the entire palate. The wine has not been affected by the often excessively high summer temperatures. The finish is long and well-defined. We recommend pairing the wine with blue cheese, foie gras, and fruit-themed desserts. We suggest a serving temperature of 6º - 10ºC
