This sweet, thick, juicy Sauternes does not possess as much complexity as the top wines of the vintage. Perhaps more will emerge with aging, as the wine is more sugary, cloying, and plump than previous examples from this estate. The color is light golden. This honeyed, buttery Rayne-Vigneau does not reveal as much precision, definition, or evidence of botrytis as exists in the vintage's finest offerings. Nevertheless, there is plenty to enjoy in this straightforward, monolithic 1990.

Leuchtendes Gelb, etwas heller als andere 90er Sauternes. Frisches Schlüsselblumenbouquet, Vanille, Netzmelonen. Saftiger, süffiger Gaumen, burgundisch, süss, Papayaton, lang. Feminine Sauternes-Eleganz.
