Chateau de Rayne Vigneau 2001
Chateau de Rayne Vigneau – First Growth Sauternes
Bill Blatch: A beautifully fine-tuned Sauternes, totally without heaviness, all fragrance and balance, with a tightness of style that presumably comes from the acidity that is not only just refreshing, it is elegant, full of finesse and really classy. Added to which, the oak shines through with a fresh kind of balsa effect that enhances the fragrance of the wine itself. Great balance. Drink now before it gets too secondary? Or keep forever? I vote for the former just in case.
