Item Description
The 2010 vintage was somewhat similar to the 2009. The start of the growing season was complex and difficult to manage through to mid-June, due to high rainfall. Then July, August and September were very dry (20mm on average), with high daytime temperatures and cool nights, ideal conditions for the slow but complete ripening of the grapes.

TASTING NOTES (AT BOTTLING)
The colour is already an attractive pale gold.
Candied exotic fruits on the nose dominate over the primary aromas of the grape varieties. Firm on the palate, quite concentrated, then opening up to reveal soft hints of honey.
About Carmes De Rieussec
The Rieussec estate was the property of the monks of Carmes de Langon in the 18th century.

The owner at the time of the 1855 classification, when Rieussec was classified a first growth, was a Mr. Mayne. After that, Rieussec had a long succession of owners: Charles Crepin bought in around 1870, Paul Defolie in 1892, Mr. Edgar Bannel a well known banker of Bordeaux in 1907, the Gasqueton family (also owners of Château Calon-Ségur in Saint Estèphe), the American P. F. Berry (brother-in-law of the Vicomte de Bouzet) during the war, Mr. Balaresque in 1957 and Albert Vuillier in 1971.

In 1984, Rieussec was bought by Domaines Barons de Rothschild, the owners of Château Lafite Rothschild. The Rothschilds invested in a new cellar in 1989, and strove to increase quality by better selection of the grapes, which also led to reduced production in the 1990s. One of the more recent recognitions for quality was when Château Rieussec 2001 was selected as Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year in 2004.
