About Chateau Rieussec
Chateau Rieussec has a storied history, beginning several centuries ago with the Carmelite monks. The same order that gave its name to Les Carmes Haut-Brion owned Chateau Rieussec until the French Revolution, when the property was confiscated and sold as a national asset. Today it belongs to Domaines de Baron de Rothschild.
95 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2004
($72-$95) Pale yellow-gold. Superripe nose dominated by honey and marzipan. Hugely ripe and deep, with compelling layers and depth of fruit. Superconcentrated, exotic flavors of apricot, minerals and coconut. Wonderfully chewy, thick and sweet, and extremely long on the aftertaste. A huge wine that will impress early but will really need a minimum of a decade to shed some of its baby fat.
