Château de Rayne Vigneau, Sauternes, 2007 - Private Cellar

A classy, substantial dessert wine with a bit of age from Private Cellar

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.
