Over the weekend, Chateau Rieussec announced that the wine world was going to be surprised and it did not disappoint!
Ch. Rieussec announced a brand new packaging, along with a new communication for the Rieussec brand. A lovely bottle made of 95% recycled glass, with a reusable cork and a modern, eye-catching logo that will be filled with the 2019 vintage this year. It is certainly a bottle that will stand out from its other Sauternes neighbours and which has a clear vision : to make Rieussec an everyday drinking wine, and to avoid the old image of a Christmas or dessert wine that people open once a year.
The official release is Tuesday 19th October when people will be able to purchase a bottle of this new Rieussec.
This decision comes along with the project of having a fully organic vineyard starting this year, like its brother l’Evangile in Pomerol, and Lafite Rothschild in the years to come.
At Cru Wine, we love this idea of moving Sauternes in a new direction and we will be pleased to offer this wine to our dearest customers. You can contact us to know more about this new wine or if you are looking for other vintages of Ch.Rieussec for your cellar!
