Carmes de Rieussec Sauternes · 2008
Grape varieties: Sémillon 80-90%
Sauvignon & Muscadelle 10-20%
Tasting notes: The beginning of the growth cycle had been a
tricky period. The technical team had to be particularly vigilant
in order to protect the vines. Fine and stable weather returned
in June but conditions became drought like, interspersed in July,
August and September with welcome periods of light rain.
Daily hot temperatures combined with fairly cool nights enabled
Expressive fruit & delightful wine. A very good finish. The wine
still needs to be kept in cellar for a few years.
