The sweet wines of Sauternes have a balance between richness and freshness that few other wines can match. This Château de Rayne Vigneau is a wonderful example from a Premier Grand Cru Classé de Sauternes.
Dark straw yellow, almost mahogany - ripe roasted yellow stone fruit with zesty oranges and lemons; gentle oaking adds to the depth and body; honeyed sweetness, savouriness and freshness. Deft, assured, complex and balanced.
Drink by itself or match with a crème brûlée.
Very Good - and good value.
