Carmes de Rieussec 2015 375ml Half Bottle
Château Rieussec is owned by the prestigious Château Lafite-Rothschild. This is the second wine of the house, but commands as much care and attention as their grand vin. Sauternes is a sweet style of wine made with grapes affected by Botrytis cinerea, whereby they shrivel and rasin on the vine concentrating the sugars and flavours. These grapes are meticulously hand-picked over successive vineyard passes before a long fermentation process and 18 months aging in oak. The result is this luscious dessert wine with a candied fruit, honey and saffron palate balanced by a refreshing acidity.
