Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

A masculine-styled, dense purple-colored 2009, this cuvee offers up scents of charcoal, asphalt, black currants, incense, and crushed rocks. This deep, medium to full-bodied, well-made Margaux is broader, richer, and more substantial than usual, with more alcohol as well as substance. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated. This is a 30-year wine. (Tasted two times.) - Robert Parker 89-91 PointsFresh and clean, with a moderate range of damson plum, blackberry and licorice notes backed by easygoing toast on the iron-tinged finish. Best from 2013 through 2020. 7,080 cases made. JM - Wine Spectator Magazine 89 PointsMedium red-ruby. Musky black fruits, Christmas spices, cedar and tobacco leaf on the nose. Spicy and classically dry, with dark berry flavors complicated by herbs and menthol. Good intensity and length. The wine's substantial dusty tannins will require at least several years in bottle to soften. - Stephen Tanzer 88+ Points

Château Rauzan-Gassies was part of the huge Rauzan estate which was divided up towards the end of the 18th century. The name "Gassies" comes from the noble Gassies family of which Gaillard de Tarbes was feudal lord in 1530. The "Rauzan" part of the name comes from the famous Counsellor at the Bordeaux Parliament in the mid 17th century. Monsieur de Rauzan was able to promote his already famous wine at the courts of France and England. The château was purchased by the Quié family in 1945.Most of the vineyards are located around the château on a former river bed of the Garonne. The average altitude is 15 to 18 m. The soil is just about a complete cross-section of the local geology: deep gravel, sandy gravel and sand. Grape varieties are as follows: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The fermenting vats are made of stainless steel and the wine is traditionally aged in oak barrels. Annual production varies from 100-140,000 bottles
