Marks and reviews
Château de Rayne Vigneau is located in the commune of Bomme, overlooking the Sauternes appellation. Created in the 17th century, the estate has passed through the hands of several illustrious families such as the de Pontac family, closely linked to the great wines of Bordeaux. Today the château belongs to the Trésor du Patrimoine group.
Château de Rayne Vigneau 2022 is a Sauternes wine made from a 84-hectare vineyard on a single hilltop overlooking the appellation. The vines are 40 years old on average and are planted on a mosaic of soils. On the heights there are clay and gravel soils, while at lower altitudes the vines are planted on clay and sandy soils with subsoils of lacustrine limestone. The vineyard is run sustainably with an intra-plot management.
Winemaking and ageing
Manual harvesting by successive selections. Light pressing before vinification in barrels (30% new). Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.
Sauvignon Blanc (24%)
Lively and precise, the nose opens with gourmet fruity fragrances (pear, mango, pineapple). With aeration, the bouquet becomes more complex with elegant notes of pepper.
The palate delights with its notes of orange blossom drawing out to a finish of rare persistence and freshness.
