Château Rieussec is part of the portfolio of the family holding company of Lafit, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (DBR).

“The wines of Sauternes are so wonderful that we wanted to have our own, and Rieussec’s vineyard is outstanding”, says Baron Eric de Rothschild, the head of DBR.

Tasting Notes

"Still in barrel, the 2017 Rieussec is just as impressive as it was en primeur. Rich, ample and voluptuous, the 2017 has all the intensity that is so typical of Rieussec, but with the extra kick of freshness that is now such an emphasis here. Candied orange peel, crême brulée, vanillin, passion fruit and pineapple emerge from the glass. I can't wait to taste this from bottle." - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, (March, 2020), Ratings: 94-97, Drink: 2022-2042

"Blended of 83% Sémillon and 17% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2017 Rieussec gives up beautiful notes of orange marmalade, beeswax, acacia honey and yuzu with touches of lemon tart, grapefruit pastilles and musk perfume. The palate is full, rich and unctuous with incredible layers of citrus and honeyed fruits, finishing very long and perfumed." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/27/2018, Issue 236), Ratings: 96-98
