Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau de Rayne Vigneau 1er Cru Classé 2001


Lobenberg: In der offiziellen Klassifizierung von 1855 wird Vigneau als 1er Grand Cru Classé eingestuft und zählt damit zu den absoluten Spitzenweinen des Sauternes. 2001 ist zudem eines der legendärsten Sauternes-Jahre überhaupt. Tolle, intensive Nase von reifer Orange, auch Orangenöl, Safran und Aprikose. Am Gaumen mit hoher Dichte und reifer Frucht. Aromen von Trockenobst und Quittenmarmelade, dazu kommt eine geniale Frische aus der feinen Säureader, die die Süße perfekt balanciert. Kandierte Ananas und gesalzene Mandel im Nachhall. Im langen Abgang schwingt sogar eine gewisse Mineralität mit. Ein durchaus komplexer Sauternes aus einem grandiosen Jahr. 94-95/100


Jancis Robinson über: Chateau de Rayne Vigneau 1er Cru Classé

-- Jancis Robinson: Broad and gorgeous – rather more forward than the Lafaurie Peyraguey served immediately before. There's enough stuffing for a long life however. 18/20


Galloni über: Chateau de Rayne Vigneau 1er Cru Classé

-- Galloni: The 2001 Château de Rayne Vigneau has quite an intense nose of orange cordial, pineapple, saffron and almond scents, not as delineated as its its peers, yet nicely focused. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, viscous and tangy, offering flavors of marmalade and quince. Perhaps it needs a little more nerve on the finish, but it feels sustained in the mouth. Give this a little more time because it is evolving the sophistication that was missing in its youth. 92+/100


Parker über: Chateau de Rayne Vigneau 1er Cru Classé

-- Parker: The Rayne Vigneau has a lifted bouquet with honeycomb, dried pineapple and dried quince that gains intensity with aeration. The palate is ripe and spicy on the entry with mandarin and Seville orange marmalade. There is very good weight and cohesion here, long and gently spiced on the finish. The estate has produced superior wines in recent years, but there is still plenty to enjoy here, even if it lacks the sophistication of some of its peers. 90/100


Wine Cellar Insider über: Chateau de Rayne Vigneau 1er Cru Classé

-- Wine Cellar Insider: Ready to go. The wine is medium bodied, fresh and focused on its tropical, pineapple, apricot, tangerine, honey and spicy personality. While it lacks the weight of the top wines from the vintage, the acidity is good, giving the wine the right amount of freshness and sweetness to make it fun to taste today. It is not a wine I'd wait for miracles to happen in the bottle however. 90/100
