Carmes de Rieussec, Sauternes, 2011

The second wine of Château Rieussec, named after the Carmes de Langon monks who owned the estate in the 18th century. 85% Semillon, 10% Sauvignon Blanc and a little Muscadelle: moderate oak, splendid richness and general approachability. Scent of preserved lemons and barley sugar. Very sweet, very concentrated, all oranges and caramel, luscious, smooth and fat. Now-2023

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
