About

The quality of the Rieussec terroir is recognized as the Premier Cru Classé of Sauternes and Barsac. From this date, the history of Château Rieussec is dotted with changes of ownership. Château Rieussec was acquired by the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in 1984, the estate then had 110 ha including 68 ha of vines. To better express the Château’s potential, rigorous measures are put in place with, among other things, more meticulous grain sorting and fermentation in barrels, which allows a much finer selection during the blending of the great wine. “R” de Rieussec is the dry white wine produced by the Sauternes estate.
