Sporting a new, eye-catching bottle made from 95% recycled glass, Château Rieussec 2019 is composed of a blend of 89% Semillon, 9% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle. This is a classic Château Rieussec revealing precise, fresh fruits on the nose; citrus zest and lemon alongside toasted brioche notes. The palate is dense and rich with powerful notes of candied mandarin, nutmeg and a touch of star anise. Long and clean on the finish with a pleasant hint of bitterness.

We also have the superb Château Rieussec 2010 available here.

“89% Sémillon, 9% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Muscadelle. Barrel sample. Bright gold. Pear and citrus aromas. Sweet, full and concentrated. Big and dense with plenty of reserve but perhaps a bit too much? Faint bitter botrytised finish.” – James Lawther MW, Jancis Robinson.

“This is the 2019, because Rieussec is no longer showing En Primeur but instead when it is in bottle. Marmalade and bitter orange peel is totally gorgeous, and this is one of the best Rieussec’s that I can remember. A ton of juicy minerality, not overly concentrated but full of fresh pineapple and white mango, white peach and pear. 120g/l residual sugar. A brilliant Rieussec with so much personality and a full, rich texture through the mid palate.” – 95 Pts, Jane Anson, Decanter.com
