Rayas

Chateau Rayas is one of the Southern Rhone’s top producers. Producing arguably the best Grenache from surprisingly young vines and top-tier Syrah at neighbouring Fonsalette this is a unique producer making the most of the shallow hostile soils of the region.

Rayas Chateauneuf-du-Pape 1995 (1x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

The 1995 is spectacular. When Emmanuel Reynaud said it was evolving quickly, in essence repudiating this vintage, I immediately drank two bottles of this glorious elixir. It does not reveal the over-ripeness of the 1990, bringing to mind a hypothetical blend of the great 1989 and 1978. Deeply-colored and still young, with black currant/creme de cassis-like characteristics, huge body, yet great structure and delineation, this is a classic Rayas that is totally different than the 1990. It should continue to improve in the bottle and may merit an even higher score. While it can be drunk now, it will be even better with 3-4 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020.

Rayas Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2006 (12x75cl)

Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (97)

Component #1, from "a variety of sites": Fresh raspberry and cherry on the nose, with sweet red and dark fruit preserve flavors. Even sweeter on the finish, with a jolt of lavender pastille. Component #2, from "older vines": Dense cherry and candied violet aromas. Fleshy in texture, with deep, sweet cherry fruit. Became more tannic with air but stayed sweet. Component #3, "from stony soil": Exotic raspberry and Asian spice aromas. Sweet, weighty and improbably elegant, with vivid red fruit flavors and outstanding finishing clarity. Remarkable. Has the potential to be a great vintage for this wine.
