Carmes de Rieussec, Sauternes, Chateau Rieussec 2018 HALF Bottle (37.5cl)


Sweet, Bordeaux, France

In stock


Carmes de Rieussec 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.  Now 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.

Specific food matches are a fresh fruit tarte, and it goes marvellously with apple or rhubarb crumbles. For a savoury choice, duck pate or blue cheese such as Stilton or Roquefort. Yum!
