R de Rieussec 2017
The blend is composed of 53% Sémillon and 47% Sauvignon Blanc. It is ready to be savoured in the radiance of its youth or kept for 2-3 years to allow it to fully bloom.
This vintage simply sings of ripe peaches, pink grapefruit and lemon curd with touches of elderflowers, honeysuckle and straw. The palate is medium-bodied and packed with zingy stone fruit and citrus layers, supported by a wicked backbone of freshness, finishing long and minerally.
