A wine of joy and pure pleasure, the 2015 Carmes de Rieussec is absolutely delicious. The 2015 Carmes de Rieussec has a pale to medium golden color and a lovely nose of lemon tart, orange marmalade and preserved apricots with hints of musk perfume and candied ginger. This Sauternes wine is medium to full-bodied, richly fruited and with compelling savory and earthy layers intermingled with the citrus preserves, it finishes with great freshness and length. The 2015 Carmes de Rieussec is composed of 87% Sémillon, 7% Sauvignon Blanc and 6% Muscadelle.
