Rieussec is close to the top of the Sauternes pyramid. With the concentration of flavors, thick textures, sensations of honey-drenched pineapple, orange, apricot, mango, and nectarines with vanilla and caramel notes are easy to find. This is a stunning wine that can age for decades.
One thing consumers should be aware of when it comes to aging Chateau Rieussec, the wine usually develops a darker color than other Sauternes. With 20-30 years, the wine can appear to look more like amber or copper in color. This is normal for Rieussec.
