The 2015 Chateau Rieussec wine reveals a bright, pale straw gold color and is a little closed at this youthful stage. This Chateau Rieussec wine offers wonderful purity and depth, featuring notes of lemon marmalade, orange blossoms, beeswax and acacia honey with hints of preserved kumquats and peach compote. This Rieussec Sauternes wine is very elegant and fine in the medium to full-bodied mouth, it features a racy backbone cutting through the earthy and citrus layers, finishing long and spicy. The 2015 Chateau Rieussec is a great Sauternes wine with lots of potential so my suggestion is to resist the temptation of popping a bottle. A phenomenal white wine with dried pineapple and pear aromas and flavors. Full, very sweet. The Rieussec 2015 has an incredible depth and power.
The 2015 Chateau Rieussec wine has a blend of 86% Semillon and 14% Sauvignon Blanc.
