2009 1er Cru Classe from Sauternes

The 2009 favourable climatic conditions allowed the production of an outstanding vintage in Sauternes. The 2009 Chateau de Rayne Vigneau is a lovely blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. 

On the nose, this wine reveals a remarkable strength through delicate apricot, minty and ginger notes. At first, the palate offers a certain suppleness and freshness. It then opens up on a considerable richness while developing a good balance.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Pale gold colored, the 2009 Rayne-Vigneau is revealing scents of broom, green tea, fragrant earth and candied citrus peel with touches of Manuka honey and crème caramel. The evolving palate has a pleasant nuttiness complimenting the hedonic dried berry layers, finishing earthy/savory.
