Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. Showing wonderful concentration of fine honey and botrytis, this is a forward wine. Fine acidity frames layers of marmalade, tangerine and lime tones. This will develop slowly and richly.

Wine AdvocateThe Château Rayne-Vigneau 2014 could be one of the standouts of the vintage. It was showing a little new oak on the nose, though readers should note that this sample was taken from a new Burgundy barrel. There are touches of vanilla infusing the honeyed fruit. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry. This is very balanced and poised with superb tension, energetic but classy, a sophisticated Sauternes that feels persistent and long in the mouth. Talented winemaker Anne Le Naour has crafted another beauty from this estate that deserves more respect.

Wine SpectatorSpicy, with ginger and cardamom hints weaving around the pineapple, quince and fig flavors. The juicy edge has a piecrust note. Still a bit raw, but the range is there.
