2005 1er Cru Classefrom Sauternes

The Chateau de Rayne Vigneau vineyard stretches over 84 hectares on a vast hilltop overlooking the Sauternes terroir. This 2005 vintage is a blend of 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc from 30 year old vines.
This beautiful golden coloured Sauternes gives off citrusy and candied fruit notes mixed with white flower and white peach fragrances. On the palate, the 2005 Chateau Rayne Vigneau is thick, strong yet remains fresh. This great worth-keeping wine is a pleasurable wine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château de Rayne-Vigneau has a waxy, dried pineapple, honey and petrol-tinged bouquet that gains vigor in the glass. The palate is fresh and vibrant with plenty of botrytis: very harmonious with honeyed fruit laced with dried orange peel, quince and ginger. This builds extremely well in the mouth and fans out in glorious fashion on the finish. This is an excellent Sauternes that should give 20 or 30 years of pleasure.
