1995 Rieussec, Sauternes

SKU #994337 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 It is safe to say that Château Rieussac has both feet firmly cemented within the highest echelon of the Sauternes hierarchy, tucked neatly just behind Château d'Yquem. A brief glance at my notes illustrates how this wine delivers year after year, a consistency that has sealed its reputation as one of the most reliable, trustworthy sweet Sauternes in consumers' eyes. (Neal Martin, Producer Profile)

K&L Notes

For several generations, Château Rieussec has been a leading name in Sauternes wines. As early as 1868, Charles Cocks remarked that "Beyond any of the others, Rieussec produces wines that are very similar to Yquem wines." Sémillon 95%, Muscadelle 2% and Sauvignon 3%. Length of ageing in oak barrels : 18 to 26 months depending on the year, including 55% in new barrels.
