1995 Château de Rayne-Vigneau 500ml
Scores: CT:89.6 AVG: 89
A premier cru classe, Ch. De Rayne Vigneau has almost 200 acres of vineyards planted with Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle; the grapes that are used to make Sauternes. As you'd expect, picking is by hand to ensure that only the perfectly botrytised grapes are selected. The Indian summer that came in 1995 allowed for a successful spread of botrytis and the wines produced have proven themselves to have excellent aromas and fruit concentration. Bright acidity keeps the wine fresh and elegant. For many the perfect aperitif whilst others prefer it with foie-gras or even blue cheese at the end of a meal.
