Winemaker Notes

A brilliant bright color, enlivened by silver reflections. Intense on the nose, starting with liveliness and attractive blackcurrant bud character, then opening up to delicate and fresh hawthorn aromas. The palate, with lots of liveliness, has strong mineral character.

Wine Enthusiast
This is the dry white wine made from the Sauternes estate of Rayne Vigneau. Grapefruit and other citrus flavors are prominent, cutting through the taut texture, along with with a light touch of honey that gives richness. The wine needs to age a little longer, so drink from late 2016.

Chateau Rayne Vigneau Winery Image
The name "Vignau de Bommes" describes the vineyard, the chateau, the manor and the de Vignau family who can trace their ancestors' ownership back to 1635. The chateau's subsoil has a remarkable feature for which there is no scientific explanation. It contains an astonishing variety of semi-precious stones: agate, sapphire, topaz, quartz, rock crystals, etc.

The official 1855 Classification included Vigneau among the First Growths of Sauternes. The nearby Ciron River, a tributary of the Garonne, has a major influence on Rayne Vigneau, whose vines cover a single, huge, gravelly rise that overlooks the entire region. The Ciron is responsible for morning mists in autumn that encourage the development of Botrytis Cinerea. Botrytis attacks ripe grapes, concentrating sugar and conferring a highly individual flavor unique to Sauternes. The grapes are hand picked and fermented in barrel, and the wine is also aged in barrel.

One of the most important wine regions of the world, Bordeaux is a powerhouse producer of wines of all colors, sweetness levels, and price points. Separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a coastal pine forest, this relatively flat region has a mild maritime climate, marked by cool wet winters and warm summers. Annual weather differences create significant vintage variations, making Bordeaux an exciting region to follow.

The Gironde estuary, a defining feature of Bordeaux, separates most of the region into the Left Bank and the Right Bank. Farther inland, where the Gironde splits into the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, the bucolic, rolling hills of the area in between, called Entre-Deux-Mers, is a source of great quality, approachable reds and whites.

The Left Bank, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, contains the Médoc, Graves, and Sauternes, as well as the region’s most famous chateaux. Merlot is important here as the perfect blending grape for Cabernet Sauvignon adding plush fruit and softening Cabernet's sometimes hefty tannins. Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec may also be used in the Left Bank blends.

Merlot is the principal variety of the Right Bank; Cabernet Franc adds structure and complexity to Merlot, creating wines that are concentrated, supple, and more imminently ready for drinking, compared with their Left Bank counterparts. Key appellations of the Right Bank include St. Emilion and Pomerol.

Dry and sweet white wines are produced throughout the region from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and sometimes Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris. Some of the finest dry whites can be found in the the Graves sub-appellation of Pessac-Léognan, while Sauternes is undisputedly the gold standard for sweet wines. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling wine are made in Bordeaux as well.
