Chateau Rieussec Carmes de Rieussec 2017
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Sauternes|
Staff Comments: A gorgeous white Bordeaux of 98% Semillon and 2% Muscadelle. This is semi-sweet and not cloying. Layers of honeysuckle, jasmine, guava, pear necatra nd candied melon balls. The perfect after dinner drink! Pair this with chocolate nousse, strawberries and cream or baked brie in a puff pastry. The finish goes on and on. An Argonaut Select Product
With the prestige of having the Rothschild name you would expect elegance. And this desert wine from Bordeaux definitely does not disappoint. Shimmering shades of golden sun in the glass. Aromas of anjou pear, golden raisins, butterscotch and toffee. A bright citrus note that quickly evolves into toasted vanilla, pears, meyer lemons and hints of Apricot. It's not always easy balancing the sweet wines of Sauternes with touches of acidity and fresh fruit notes, but they've nailed it here. Absolutely stunning!!!!! Serve chilled with Brandy pears and blue cheese.
The 2017 Carmes de Rieussec, a blend of 94% Sémillon, 3% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Muscadelle, opens with gorgeous lemon marmalade, peach preserves and preserved kumquat notes with touches of preserved mandarin peel and honeycomb. It fills the palate with rich, spiced apricot preserves notions, with a racy backbone to balance and a good, long finish.
