    2007 Sauternes 1er Cru Classe

    Chateau de Rayne Vigneau wines were classified in 1855 as 1er Cru Classe in the Sauternes appellation. The single-owned vineyard covers 84 hectares on a magnificent rump overlooking Bordeaux wine sub-region. The 2007 Chateau de Rayne Vigneau is 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc.

    The vintage displays a honey-tinted gold colour. The nose is very expressive with candied orange, lemon zest notes suggesting beautiful freshness. The palate offers the perfect balance between sweet and sharp.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The Rayne-Vigneau 2007 seems initially unsettled by the performance of the 2006, on first acquaintance more closed and taciturn. Leaving it to one side, over the following 15 minutes it flowers and offers very attractive scents of white peach, apricot and lemon curd. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine bead of acidity. It is a little compact and unresponsive toward the finish, but there is certainly impressive focus. It is just a Sauternes wine that needs to say more, so I suggest another two or three years in the cellar because there is immense potential. Drink 2015-2025+ Tasted April 2013.
