Since the 1800s, this property has had an outstanding reputation when it was rated a First Growth estate of Bordeaux, and today continues to be a superstar of the appellation under the ownership of Lafite Rothschild. Planted to 92% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon and 3% Muscadelle, Rieussec's vineyard is one single unit which borders Yquem.

Wine SpectatorBig, rich and juicy. Voluptuous, with aromas of caramel, apple and light tropical fruit. Full-bodied, round and very sweet, with loads of ripe fruit and a long butterscotch and piecrust aftertaste. Viscous texture. Hard not to drink it now. A wonderful sticky. Best after 2010.
