(88-90) Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Le Sec de Rayne-Vigneau has an excellent green apple, kiwi fruit and fresh melon-scented bouquet that has good vigor. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, a lovely orange rind note on the entry with a brisk, quite spicy finish. This should give five or six years of drinking pleasure." -NM, 4/28/17
