Tropical fruits commingle with the typical aromas of molasses, orange peel, and dried apricots. Hint of mint as well. Salted sweetness is countered by abundant fresh acidity. Would like to see a bit more viscosity on the medium to full body.
A simple good pairing with dark chocolate. Very youthful at 23 years. — 11 days ago
Toast, strawberry, cherry and hay on the nose. It's rather subtle and delicate. The palate is very well designed, with a strong acid backbone, a nice silky texture with strawberry, a velvety tannin wall before a fruity, silky finish. It's very smooth and juicy, and dangerously easy going. It was served all along dinner but it was showing best when paired with cheese (Saint nectaire fermier was a hit pairing) — 7 months ago
Very finely balanced wine of all 3 Jura red grapes. Soft red fruit with a long lingering taste. Very good! — 2 years ago
Chateau de Rayne Vigneau 1er Grand cru Classe
What a delicious Sauternes ! This lovely 375ml bought upon release is pure pleasure , if you like Sauternes would love this one.
The nose is rich and intense with notes of Freud apricot, dates , honey, dried kiwis and papaya, spring flowers and a touch of botrytis cinerea, the body is full rich creamy, a pure delicious nectar, and the finish long sweet and balanced pleasure.
My score 91, drink to 2030

Lucky enough to have been invited to pillage the cellar of an old friend and came out of it with a 1975 and 1986 ch Rayne-Vingneau Sauternes. Both wonderful but the 86 was stunning, everything a late harvest wine can and should be. Fresh herbal aromas of tarragon, camphor, menthol and almond oil. Honeyed dried apricots in mid palate with do much more . Clean mineral and mediciinal finish. Very lush and lithe. Truly a standard bearer. — 2 years ago

16/20 (89/100) Аромат сушеных яблок и груш, цедра лимона, нота «летучки». Довольно тельное и кислотное. Лежалые яблоки во вкусе. Достойно. — 2 years ago
