  • Château de Rayne Vigneau

    Premier Grand Cru Classé de Sauternes en 1855

    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.

    The elegant straw yellow colour of Château de Rayne Vigneau 2012 still has shimmering green reflections. Acacia blossom is the first aromatic impression, subtle and discreet, pointed up with grapefruit zest. This floral delicacy is repeated in the honeyed smoothness of the palate. There is a taste of candied fruits: apricot, orange and lemon peel. A voluptuous journey that ends with the balance imparted by orange blossom flavours.

    The 2011 vintage shows good balance between freshness and opulence. The noble rot left the fruit of the grapes intact. On-the-vine selections of botrytised grapes were concentrated in a short spell of time, creating a powerful and well-balanced wine that shows aromatic refinement. Reactivity and precision were the necessary skills in this very promising vintage.

    A very fresh nose, both lively and intense. Instantly aromatic and reminiscent of citrus fruit, especially grapefruit, closely followed by fresh apricots.

    The touch is silky-smooth on the palate, and one finds the full range of racy freshness that was noticeable on the nose. It feels just as crisp as a fresh apricot. The volume then grows gradually, producing mangolike flavours.

    The nose is amazingly intense, showing delicate hints of apricot, mint and ginger. The first impression on the palate is supple and yet fresh, then revealing some very luscious flavours while remaining perfectly in balance. Mint and marmalade give way to fresh citrus fruit. The wine is perfectly poised despite its considerable richness. This is a most accomplished Rayne Vigneau, both powerful and extremely elegant. Could be drunk as from 2015, but at its best between 2030 and 2040.

  • Madame de Rayne

    Second wine of Château de Rayne Vigneau, Sauternes

    The name of this wine of Château de Rayne Vigneau homage to Madame de Rayne, one of the illustrious owners of the château, whose maiden name was Catherine de Pontac. She bought the château in 1834 and worked to establish the greatness of its wines.

    Madame de Rayne is very much in the line of the “Grand Vin”, receiving the same care and attention but choosing a more immediately accessible style, both fresh and intense.
