Chateau de Cosse, the second label to Chateau Rieussec, is selected from barrels that have the same base as the Grand Vin. Its characteristics are very similar to the "Grand Vin", but with shorter ageing in barrels.
The grapes included are the typical grapes of Sauternes and the Cosse includes 92% Sémillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc, and 3% Muscadelle. Classic pairings for the Sauternes dessert wine include foi gras and blue cheese.
