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 1985 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93)

The 1985 was great young, then went into a dormant state, but has bounced back with a vengeance. The medium ruby color is not particularly saturated, but the gorgeous bouquet offers up scents of balsam, pepper, black cherries, and leather. The wine is alcoholic, heady, and rich, but a sneaky tannic characteristic creeps up as the wine sits in the glass. The 1985 has continually played games, one bottle suggesting early maturity, and the next indicating far greater longevity. There is no color degradation, and it appears to be just now reaching its peak of maturity. I would opt for drinking it over the next 5-10 years.

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.

Rayas Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2007 (12x75cl)

Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (97)

Component #1: Seductive bouquet of wild strawberry, raspberry, cinnamon and five-spice powder. Silky red berry flavors pack serious punch but seem weightless, like a great Burgundy. #2: Deeper kirsch and cassis aromas, with strong notes of cracked pepper and licorice. Like velour in texture, showing deep, sweet dark fruit flavors and gentle tannins. #3: Intensely perfumed aromas of Asian spices, potpourri, cherry, licorice and white pepper. Creamy dark berry and candied licorice flavors stain the palate, braced by tangy minerals. The ultimate wine should be a knockout.

Rayas Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2008 (1x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93)

A much lighter style of wine, but showing far better now that it has had some time in bottle, is Emmanuel Reynaud’s 2008 Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape. Medium ruby, with a classic nose of kirsch liqueur intermixed with Provencal herbs, sandy, loamy soil notes, some licorice and steak tartare, this wine is fleshy, medium to full-bodied, round, generous, and surprisingly seductive and luscious. I wouldn’t be surprised if many tasters prefer this over the bigger, richer, more structured and potentially far greater 2007, at least for the next 4-5 years. This is a sensational effort and one of the finest wines of the vintage, the most challenging year in Chateauneuf du Pape since the historical deluge in 2002.
