Maximo Ribera Del Duero Grand Reserva
Presents a dark cherry colour. It is an intense frank wine of great complexity. The range of black fruits, very ripe as plum, blackberry and cherries are perceived. Complete its bouquet with balsamic perfumes, a soft vanilla, black cocoa and roasted. Powerful and mature entry, with weight and remarkable length. Concentrated and full-bodied, its character is reflected in its velvety and dense tannin, tamed, providing a very good structure. An adequate acidity that provides long life and evolution, being the ideal companion of all dishes of lean meats, roast lamb, beef chop, without forgetting the cured cheeses and foie gras.

“A red Bandol that fully lives up to the revered reputation of this tiny enclave of vines nestled on the coast just outside the city of Toulon. The limestone dominated soils ensure that the wines are endowed with structure and yet elegance. This striking red wine maybe heady and rich yet it retains sufficient freshness throughout. Deep, dark spiced wild herbs and autumnal fruit combine seamlessly with notes of faded rose, leather and damson plum. The sculpted tannins provide ample structure yet do not dominate the luxurious, powerful fruit. A wine to savour.” Neil Sommerfelt - Master of Wine
Château Rieussec is a wine producer located in Fargues, in the Sauternes appellation in Bordeaux. It makes sweet wines from a classic Bordeaux blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, and was classified as a first growth in the 1855 Classification of Sauternes and Barsac, alongside the finest sweet white wines the region.
In the 18th Century, the estate was tended to by Carmelite monks before being confiscated in the French Revolution. After passing hands several times, it has now come under the ownership of Barons de Rothschild (which owns Château Lafite Rothschild), in partnership with Albert Frére of LVMH. Château Rieussec's 2001 vintage was #1 in Wine Spectator's Top 100 in 2004.
