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. -- Neal Martin

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.- NM

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. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2001&wine=Chateau%20de%20Rayne-Vigneau
