LES CARMES DE RIEUSSEC Second sweet wine from Château Rieussec 2016 6 bottles 75cl

Second wine of Rieussec, created in 2002. Expressive and seductive - flowers, white peach, honey - on a body that is half sweet but very elegant (terroir obliges). The Sauternes affair, its market price being even lower than its production cost!

Since 2011, Carmes de Rieussec has been following the same upward slope as the great Château Rieussec wine. More lively and less sweet than its big brother, Carmes de Rieussec enchants from its earliest youth with its pure fruitiness and elegance, as well as its price (less than €20 per bottle for any vintage) which is certainly lower than its production cost.

"Rieussec, one of the jewels of the Domaines Rothschild [Lafite] impresses with his power and richness. The second Carmes wine is not demagogic and presents all the richness expected on this type of soil [93 ha vineyard adjacent to Yquem], with a faster development in bottle."

    Appointed cellar master in 1994, Mr. Chevallier focused on developing Lafite-Rothschild wines without losing any of the characteristic bouquet of blackcurrant, graphite and cedar. This objective was quickly achieved in 1995, placing Lafite at the top of the 1st classified growths (this was already the case in 1855), and revered as such by the Chinese market. The incredible qualities of Lafite's terroir make it a unique vintage and give Cabernet Sauvignon (more than 90% present each year) its most beautiful aromatic expressions.

    Rated 90/100 by Neal Martin after bottling « The 2017 L’Evangile is 100% Merlot since frost denied the estate its usual Cabernet Franc. A lovely wine given the difficult circumstances, although the follow-up will be better. » (February 2020)
