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.

Bordering the vineyards of Château d’Yquem, Rieussec owned by the Rothschild family, produces one of the fuller sweet styles of Sauternes. Much of this is due to the high percentage of Sémillon in the blend. This 2006 has gentle floral aromas with more intense fruit and honeyed flavours and a long fresh finish. Mmmm!
