Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The Château Rayne-Vigneau 2011 has a more resinous bouquet than the Rieussec ’11: hints of lanolin and smoked walnut infusing the honeyed fruit and lending complexity and personality. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity. There is fine tension here, neatly counterbalancing the strong botrytized fruit and it fans out wonderfully on the finish. It needs more bottle age to develop personality, but from this foundation it is set to become a Sauternes from the top drawer. eRobertParker.com.February, 2015

The Rayne-Vigneau has a seductive nose with tropical fruit, vanilla and coconut aromas that seek to entrance from first acquaintance. At the moment, the oak is noticeable but it should assimilate by the time of bottling. The palate is very precise with fine minerality and tension on the entry. It has outstanding focus and linearity before fanning out with a peacock’s tail of quince and marmalade on the long, viscous finish. This is an excellent wine that gets better and better in the glass. Drink 2014-2035. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate April 2012

Sweet and rich, but with a racy edge, showing nicely detailed orange zest, fig, apricot and nectarine notes. A firm hint of bitter almond adds length on the finish. Very solid. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

RS 145 g/l, TA 4.0 g/l, pH 3.9. Mid to deep gold. Spicy and complex on the nose, pure lemon and honey on the palate but with a lively spark to lift all that weight of sweetness. Sweet/sour fresh length. Exudes finesse and goes on and on. Great acidity. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

A little bit closed today but aromas of lemon meringue pie, jasmine, and a touch of cinnamon are still detectable. Orange zest, lychee and fig on the palate. Good complexity and acidity slicing through the weight of the body. FINE+RARE
