Tasting temperature: 8 -10°C

TASTING NOTES (AT BOTTLING)

Generous nose with jammy notes of white fruit, evolving towards bitter orange.
The attack is delicate, the wine then develops superb power with notes of fresh pineapple. The palate is full-bodied with well-integrated wood. Well-balanced and concentrated, the finish is long and lingering.

Baron Eric de Rothschild : "The wines of Sauternes are so wonderful that we wanted to have our own, and Rieussec’s vineyard is outstanding”
