Highly aromatic nose combines pit fruits, pineapple, rose petal, menthol and vanillin oak. Penetrating, intensely flavored and precise, with sweet flavors leavened by solid acidity. Very young, firm-edged wine with excellent balance. The best young Rayne-Vigneau I've sampled in a long time.- ST

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.- NM
