Characteristics Carmes de Rieussec

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Carmes de Rieussec is a sweet wine fermented in barrels made by Château Rieussec in AOC Sauternes (Bordeaux) with the Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadelle and Semillon varieties.

 

 

Since the Dominion of Rieussec was confiscated from Carmelite monks in the 18th century, it’s passed through different hands. In 1984, however, when it was acquired by Domaine Barons de Rothschild, a series of rigorous rules were implemented to express the best potential of an exceptional terroir: Premier Cru Classé de Sauternes and Barsac.

 

 

Carmes de Rieussec originates from 93 hectares of vineyards which are located between Fargues and Sauternes, within the Bordeaux wine region. They are old vines planted in gravel soils, with sedimentary deposits. The harvest is manual and, due to being carried out in several batches, can last between a month and a half and 2 months.

 

 

Once the Carmes de Rieussec grape has been meticulously selected, fermentation in wooden barrels begins. The wine is then aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

 

 

Named after the Carmelite monks who lived in this property in the 18th century, Carmes de Rieussec is the second wine from this prestigious winery. A wine with an intense and varied aromatic range and with an ample and generous palate. A sweet blessing!
