Château de Rayne Vigneau
Rayne Vigneau lies on a splendid gravel mound, overlooking Sauternes near the village of Bommes, and the influence of the Ciron stream plays a key role in the over-ripening of the grapes. The official 1855 classification recognised Vigneau among the top wines of Sauternes, and in 1867, the well-known wine broker Daney ranked it in first place. Now the Château de Rayne Vigneau is managed by Vincent Labergere, the Director, and the consultant oenologist, Henri Boyer. The vines are an average of 30 years old, divided between 74% Sémillon, 24% Sauvignon Blanc, which brings the freshness so typical of the wines of this château, and 2% Muscadelle.
