Chateau de Rayne Vigneau 2008

Parker : 90 / 100
Wine Spectator : 85-88 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Rayne-Vigneau has a more resinous bouquet with touches of almond and quince, but clearly less botrytis than the 2007. There is also a marine-like element. The palate is rounded and candied on the entry with an attractive effervescent quality with quince and peach notes informing the finish. It appears to have closed up a little in the last few months but it will rebound in a few years time. Drink 2016-2025+. Tasted April 2013.
