The second wine of Château Rieussec is selected according to the same standards as the first wine. Its constant feature is centered on a fine aromatic structure dominated by citrus aromas. The name, Carmes de Rieussec, relates to the monks of the Carmes de Langon, who were owners of the Rieussec estate in the 18th century.
After a normal winter and an exceptionally mild April, 2007 was comparatively cool from June to August, with below average temperatures and sunshine. However, a warm and sunny September and October enabled the harvest to fully ripen without any problems. In the end, the climatic conditions offered the potential for a great vintage.
Golden colour with hints of light amber.
The nose offers superb freshness with exotic fruit; in the mouth there is a well-structured sweetness that is not excessive and finishes with slightly candied citrus flavours.
