The vineyards of Rayne Vigneau lie on a splendidly sited ridge, and have overlooked the Sauternes region ever since the estate was founded in the early 17 th century. The expression "Vigneau de Bommes" qualified, at that time, both the estate, the house, the tenure and the family called Vigneau who were the first owners. Gabriel de Vigneau appears in the title deeds as from 1635. His son Etienne married Jeanne Sauvage, the daughter of the owner of Château d'Yquem, and took over active management of the estate in 1681. Madame de Rayne, whose maiden name was Catherine de Pontac, bought the estate in 1834. Successive owners have since worked and invested considerably to improve the quality of the wines. Today the estate is one of the leading lights of the Sauternes appellation, with a clearly-defined style that shows, throughout vintages, intensity, freshness and length. Since the acquisition of Château Rayne Vigneau in 2004 by CA Grands Crus, an improvement plan has been put in place for the entire estate Read more »
