    Futures 2022 Sauternes
    • Sweet white
    238,25 € ex VAT

    Classified among the first growths of Sauternes during the classification of 1855, the vineyard of Rayne Vigneau (84 hectares, including 62 in one piece) is famous for its soil, which is well known to geologists, as it is composed of a great variety of precious minerals of Pyrenean origin. Without losing sight of these "luxurious" origins " Rayne Vigneau offers smooth, easily accessible wines with floral aromas that are particularly marked in their youth.

    Revue du Vin de France : 95-98/100 « L'expression est très distinguée avec une dominante d'écorce de citron confit. L'élégance de la forme se déploie loin en bouche, jusqu'à la finale vibrante, ou le fruit rôti mais frais prend des accents minéraux, presque ardoisés. Un style contemporain très abouti. »
    Quarin : 93/100 « Caressant dès l'entrée en bouche, juteux au milieu, le vin se développe suave, sur un corps fondant, avec une touche florale de violette très présente sur un des échantillons. Jolie finale délicatement épicée. Vin délicieux, au port envoûtant. »
    Galloni : 92-94/100 « The 2022 Rayne-Vigneau is very, very good. Jasmine, green pear, pepper and lemon confit give Rayne-Vigneau a decidedly bright profile to match its mid-weight, focused personality. This understated Sauternes is an absolute delight. »
    Martin : 93-95/100 « The palate is well balanced with a tangy entry, very pure with marmalade and peach toward the finish. I like the precision here and it should mature with style. »

    • Certified organic wine
    750,00 € ex VAT

    Climens has been, for more than 50 years, the finest, the fruitiest and the most endearing of the Sauternes wines. Almost discreet in its first youth, Climens does not cease to develop and to refine itself in bottle. Biodynamic since the 2014 vintage. Magnificent 2016 "a fruit of an exemplary purity" noted 19,5/20 by the Revue du Vin de France.

    Following 4 years of almost no production (none in 2017, 2018 and 2020, barely 1200 bottles in 2019), Climens changed hands in 2022.
