Château de Rayne Vigneau 1er Grand Cru Classé de Sauternes

$31.60

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.

Description

The official 1855 classification recognised Vigneau among the top wines of Sauternes. In 1867, the well-known wine broker Daney ranked it in first place, immediately after Yquem. Albert de Pontac, a great-nephew of Madame de Rayne, named the estate “Rayne Vigneau” in her honour.
