RIEUSSEC 1er grand cru classé 2019 bottle 75cl

bottle 75cl: 100,00 €bottle 75cl

Rothschild (de Lafite) property. Adjacent to Yquem, Rieussec was until 2012 one of the sweetest wines of Sauternes, revealing itself only after a minimum of 10 years of cellaring. First (r)evolution from 2013 towards a more elegant and delicate style, combining richness and finesse.

Second (r)evolution in 2019 with a drastic tightening of the selections, Rieussec thought as the "head cream" of Château Rieussec, accompanied by a total break of the visual codes: new bottle, new labeling, new repositionable cork, new packaging (box of 4 bottles). Rieussec is now positioned on the second step of Sauternes behind Yquem.

Rated 93/100 by M. Quarin «le vin évolue raffiné et velouté, sur une belle finale subtile et distinguée. C'est très bon et surtout sans effet de masse et de lourdeur.» (March 2022)

The 2019 vintage received a "coup de coeur" in the Hachette 2023 guide : «  Un sublime Rieussec, d'un équilibre et d'une élégance exceptionnels. »

    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!

    Known for producing one of the firmest and tightest (even robust) Pauillacs available, Duhart-Milon has since 2010 refined its style to gradually approach that of Lafite (same owner and same team). New direction and progress amply confirmed in 2015 and 2016, with an unprecedented charm and fatness. Given the quality of its terroir (the only 4th Grand Cru Classé in Pauillac), Duhart-Milon has certainly not finished its progression.

    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, 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.

    Le Pomerol au superlatif: located between Pétrus and Cheval Blanc, on a terroir combining gravel and clay, 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, managed by the Lafite-Rothschild team.

    2017 vintage rated 97/100 by Antonio Galloni "The 2017 L'Évangile, 100% Merlot for this first time, is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. [...] Time in the glass brings out lovely aromatic top notes that add freshness. A rapturously beautiful wine, L'Évangile is stellar". (March 2020)

    2017 vintage rated 96/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin "Minutieux dans son toucher dès l’attaque, puis finement gras en milieu de bouche, fondant et parfumé, le vin prend une dimension supplémentaire entre le milieu et la finale, pour s’achever long, noble et surtout incrachable". (Oct. 2020)
