The Story

Rayne Vigneau has all the excellent qualities of a legendary fine wine. Classified 1st growth in the famous 1855 classification, the domain is also renowned for its precious soil that abounds in precious stones. This Sauternes has a particularly intense style, fresh with a long finish on the palate. Rayne Vigneau is a wine that contains amazing freshness, to drink young or to keep in the cellar. 

Château de Rayne Vigneau is one of the benchmarks of this appellation.

Written Notes

Bright golden colour. Slightly closed character, ethereal with rather restrained fruit. On the palate opulent sweetness with aromatic finish.
  • 93p
Medium brassy colour. Sweet lemon glacé. pineapple, marzipan aromas. almost Rich and decadent yet well balanced with deep set sweet pineapple, grapefruit, guava flavours, voluminous plush mid palate, plenty of marzipan, glacé fruits, underlying chalky looseknit texture and fresh mineral acidity. Very weighty old fashioned style but fresh, powerful and balanced. 95 points
