"For several generations, Château Rieussec has been a leading name in Sauternes wines. As early as 1868, Charles Cocks remarked that "Beyond any of the others, Rieussec produces wines that are very similar to Yquem wines." Sémillon 95%, Muscadelle 2% and Sauvignon 3%. Length of ageing in oak barrels : 18 to 26 months depending on the year, including 55% in new barrels."
