Details Domain
It is in 1596 that Jacques Sauvage, a notable, is granted the rights of simple tenure of Yquem. The Sauvage family undertakes the construction of the castle and begins the selection of parcels of the vineyard. In 1711 the family is then ennobled under the reign of Louis XIV and becomes the happy owner of right of the castle of Yquem. A few years later the heiress of the Sauvage family, Francoise Joséphine marries Count Louis Amédée de Lur Saluces who unfortunately will die of a 3 horse fall years later in 1788. Francoise Joséphine then takes responsibility for the whole area. With a master hand it is she who elaborates the creation of the cellars and which transforms the domain into a real wine company. His work is rewarded in 1855 by raising the estate to the rank of superior premier cru. Since the estate is still in the hands of the descendants of the Lur Saluces family and after a few difficult years in the 70 years, Alexandre Lur Saluces, supported by the LVMH group (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy), perpetuates the name of Yquem admirably and preserves a heritage of more than four centuries.

Second Wine The Carmelites of Rieussec 

Details Domain
In the 1790th century, the Domaine de Rieussec belonged to the Carmelite monks of Langon. The confiscation of the Estate during the Revolution led around XNUMX to its sale as “National Property” to Mr. Marheilhac, owner at the time of Château La Louvière in Léognan.

In the 1855 classification, Mr. Mayne is the owner. The quality of the Rieussec terroir is recognized there as a Premier Cru Classé of Sauternes and Barsac. From this date, the history of Rieussec is strewn with changes of owners: Charles Crepin (around 1870), Paul Defolie (1892), M. Bannil (1907), then the Gasqueton family (owner of Château Calon-Ségur in Saint Estèphe), PF Berry during the war (American citizen brother-in-law of the Vicomte de Bouzet), M. Balaresque (1957) and finally, Albert Vuillier (1971), passionate lover of “sweet wines” from Sauternes.

Château Rieussec was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in 1984, the estate then comprised 110 ha, including 68 ha of vines. To better express the potential of Château Rieussec, rigorous measures are put in place with, among other things, more meticulous sorting of grains and fermentation in barrels which allows a much finer selection during the assembly of the great wine.

A new cellar was built to extend the period of aging in barrels from the 1989 vintage. The quantity of great wine was considerably reduced in the 90s by a more rigorous selection, the year 1993 even saw the absence of great wine. lack of quality.

From the year 2000, the renovation of the aging cellars, the construction of a fermentation cellar and the technological development of the reception and pressing room also make an additional contribution to the permanent quality effort carried out since 1985. .
