En Primeur Chateau Rieussec 2017 is released. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for information on the En Primeur release of Chateau Rieussec 2017.
With vineyards that border those of the iconic Château d`Yquem, Château Rieussec has long been considered amongst Sauternes’ best. Harvests last for 6 to 8 weeks with selective pickings depending on the ripeness of the grapes and evolution of noble rot. Wines are fermented in barrels and aged for 16 to 26 months in oak barrel, of which 50% is new.
“This is very focused and an intense with so much spice and dried lemon character with cloves and dry mushroom too. Full body and very sweet yet finishes dry and spice. Harmonious and great. 97-98 points” James Suckling, April 2018.
Offered for sale ‘En Primeur’, in bond. Price shown is per case (6x75cl bottles) and excludes UK duty and VAT which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine lands in the UK.
