Château de Rayne Vigneau 2015 – Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, gourmand, aromatic, fine and quite precise. It reveals notes of plum, jammy citrus (orange, lemon) and notes of peach in syrup associated with notes of honey, flowers, spices and a hint of gingerbread. The palate is fruity, gourmand, elegant, well-balanced and offers an acid frame (in the background), a small tension as well as a good, silky, thick and slightly creamy matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of candied citrus (lemon, clementine), peach in syrup and pear combined with slight notes of honey, a discreet hint of candied apricot and spices. Good length.
