Sweet Wine

This indicator represents the perceived style from the driest to the sweetest.  Sometimes two wines can have the same quantity of residual sugar but taste differently according to the grape used.  “A” is the driest like a Muscadet and “E” the sweetest like a Sauternes.

Carmes is the “second” wine of Château Rieussec, which is part of the Lafite-Rothschild group. Made from 80% Sémillon, 20% Sauvignon and Muscadelle – the juice is aged in oak for 18 months to produce an unctuous sweet rich style of Sauternes. Impressive!
