A wine of joy and pure pleasure, the 2015 Carmes de Rieussec is absolutely delicious. The 2015 Carmes de Rieussec wine 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 wine is composed of 87% Sémillon, 7% Sauvignon Blanc and 6% Muscadelle.
