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.

($90-$100) Full yellow-gold. Expressive aromas of pineapple, coconut, sweet vanillin oak and spices. Then wonderfully thick, fat and sweet, with the exotic coconut character carrying through in the mouth. Finishes saline and powerful, with palate-staining flavors of pineapple, coconut and spicy oak. Conveys a strong impression of solidity.
