The Rayne-Vigneau 2010 appears to come on leaps and bounds since its showing in barrel, displaying the chutzpah that I hoped would develop. It has an endearing bouquet with delicate scents of lemon curd, orange peel and a touch of coconut, exhibiting good levels of botrytis. The palate is very smooth on the entry with good acidity, honeyed and lightly spiced fruit and an elegant finish. This is a straight, down-the-line, delicious Sauternes that should elicit pleasure over the next two or three decades. Drink now-2035. eRobertParker.com.April, 2014

The Chateau Rayne-Vigneau shows a slight chalkiness on the nose that remains very tight despite coaxing from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with mango, guava and passion fruit on the entry, broadening out nicely across the palate with a spicy edge, although the finish is, at present, just a little too linear, when I expected fireworks. Hopefully this will develop more volume and chutzpah in barrel. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate May 2011

Greenish gold. Not that pure on the nose. Lots of sweetness. Quite aggressive acidity. Very fresh but well done. Chewy. RS 133 g/l, TA 4.1 g/l. 13.8% Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Noble nose, with tea and white flower undertones (often found in 2010), more Vouvray or Riesling-like than traditional Sauternes, superb purity, great level of sugar but also perfect oily texture, very long and complex aftertaste, a great wine form this great terroir and a challenger for the best First Growths. Drink 2020-2050. (18.5 points) Michel Bettane, decanter.com

The 2010 Rayne-Vigneau has a very aromatic and sweetly appealing nose, with notes of dried flowers, candied orange and lemon peel, and dried apricots. This is a delicious, complex Sauternes with wonderful depth of flavour, a lively acidity and layers of gorgeous fruit - rich but not cloying, and intense without heaviness. Simply gorgeous.

A very quiet nose to start which makes the mouth feel and weight of this wine surprising. Citrus flavours and a good acidity level pull it back from cloying and there is even quite an astringent finish which seems out of place. I hope this becomes more than its current components.
