Producer Information

Sauternes & Barsac, Bordeaux

1er Cru Classé Sauternes

Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadelle

Château Rieussec

Situated on one of the most elevated points in the appellation, Rieussec’s vineyards cover approximately 90 hectares, the soils of which are predominantly gravel and limestone. Yields are naturally low because of the dependence on the occurrence of noble rot, which concentrates the sugars, acids and flavours in the grapes. The affected grapes are hand harvested in several tries (pickings) and depending on how quickly the noble rot passes through the vineyard, harvest can last as long as 6-8 weeks. This selection process is so strict, such that if it is determined that the year’s crop is sub-par, the Château will not produce wine in that particular vintage.
