In stock

Description

This is made by Chateau Rieussec, the famous First Growth Grand Cru of Sauternes. Made from a blend of the white grapes – Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc which have been allowed to develop Botrytis (also known as Noble Rot), It’s a delicious sweet style of Bordeaux, perfect for matching with dessert or blue cheeses, with luscious citrus aromas and flavours, and a tiny hint of honey too. Carmes de Rieussec’s name is a reference to the Carmelite monks in Langon, who owned the Rieussec estate in the 18th century.  Owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild who also own Chateau Lafite, they know a thing or two about great wine from the Bordeaux area, both red, white and sweet! 14.5% ABV.
