Wine Advocate - Wine Journal

A maligned vintage for the sweet white wines of Bordeaux, Rieussec has, through a very strict selection process, turned out a lovely, fruity, spicy, lighter-styled wine with medium body and delicate tropical fruit flavors.
Robert Parker Jr
Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition



Château Rieussec was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in 1984.
Albert Vuillier, a supermarket magnate who was passionate about Sauternes’ “sweet wines”. came to Bordeaux. He spotted the latent potential in Rieussec. He bought the property in 1971 and within a few years had begun extensive renovations to the vineyards and fermentation rooms. But the success Vuillier should have had as his reward was robbed by poor conditions through the 1970s which led to a number of disappointing vintages. Unable to find a return on his investments, he sold to Domaines de Barons Rothschild in 1984.
