    2013 Vintage

    Our first impressions

    Although the climate during the 2013 vintage proved to be complicated, the quality of the vintage in Sauternes was rescued by development of botrytis of an exceptional purity.

    The successive passages through the vines have brought out two typical styles. The harvest from the first passages reveals a fine expression of fruit. The acidity is then enveloped, velvety in the mouth, thanks to the generosity and the opulence that came from grapes from the later sortings. 2013 is a new opportunity to recognise what constitutes, vintage after vintage, the signature of Château Rayne Vigneau: an exceptional tightness of freshness and opulence.

    2012 Vintage

    Our first impressions

    The 2012 winegrowing season was characterized by difficult weather conditions that required a great deal of vigilance in the vineyard.
    A cold, rainy spring, followed by a particularly dry summer, slowed down the vines' growth cycle, resulting in uneven ripening and delaying the onset of noble rot.

    We harvested steadily from 10 October to 2 November. There were only five days (15, 16, 17, 23 and 24 October) when we were able to harvest small quantities of grapes with excellent qualitative potential.
    These premium quality batches are at the heart of our 2012 blend. The result is a particularly fine Rayne Vigneau 2012, available in relatively small quantities.
