Description

1x bottle of 2005 Chateau Rayne Vigneau, Sauternes 1er Grand Cru Classe from an excellent vintage.
Bottle in perfect condition, just removed from temperature controlled storage and currently kept in cool dark cellar

'Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Chateau 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. Jun 2015, www.robertparker.com' Neil Martin 92/10

'“The 2005 Rayne-Vigneau displays superb levels of botrytis on the complex bouquet – dried honey, dried quince, apricot blossom and minerals. The palate is very well-balanced with a little more race than the 2004. It is not a powerful or ambitious Sauternes, but it is well behaved with an almost understated, pure, mellifluous finish. This is very seductive, though it should reward cellaring for several years. Drink now-2028.”'


'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-republic.co.uk

About the domain
The hillock of Rayne Vigneau is well-known among geologists for its precious stones (agate, amethyst, onyx, sapphire) as well as for the exceptional gravel and clay soil of the Château de Rayne Vigneau, planted on a stunning hilltop overlooking the entire appellation. The estate itself was founded by the Vigneau family in the 17th century. In 1681, Etienne du Vigneau, husband of Jeanne Sauvage (daughter of the Lord of Yquem) took over the property. Purchased by Madame de Rayne in 1834, the wine here was classified as a premier cru in the 1855 Classification of Sauternes crus. It was Albert de Pontac, Madame de Rayne's nephew, who named the vineyard Rayne Vigneau. A number of different owners reigned here until the vineyard was purchased by CA Grands Crus (Crédit Agricole) in 2004. Led by Anne Le Naour, Technical Estate Director for CA Grands Crus, along with Vincent Labergère, Technical Director at the Château de Rayne Vigneau and with advice from Denis Dubourdieu, an improvement plan for the vineyard was drawn up. The team simultaneously began seeking sustainable farming certification. Certification for the Rayne Vigneau vineyard and all properties managed by CA Grands Crus (the Châteaux of Grand Puy Ducasse, Meyney, Lamothe Bergeron, Blaignan and Plagnac) was granted in 2007. This certification is awarded for sustainable use of fertilisers and phytosanitary treatments, in particular: a quality-focused approach for this vineyard of 80 contiguous hectares. The vines have an average age of thirty years and benefit from their proximity to the Ciron. This tributary of the Garonne contributes to the formation of morning mist that encourages the production of noble rot.' idealwine.com
