2011 Sauternes 2e Vin du Chateau Rieussec

Les Carmes de Rieussec is classified as Second Vin du Chateau Rieussec, in the Sauternes appellation. The 2011 vintage is 84% Semillon, 12% Sauvignon, and 4% Muscadelle. The nose exudes acacia flower, fresh peach and candied apricot. The palate offers a very round attack followed by tension, and more mineral notes leading to a very long and expressive, fruity finish.
