About Chateau Rayas
Historically cited as the exception that proves that a 100%-Grenache wine can be capable of long aging, Rayas has for decades been treasured for its unique combination of almost Burgundian red-berry perfume and extraordinary liqueur-like ripeness and mouth-filling richness. Founded in 1880 by Albert Reynaud, Chateau Rayas is now maintained by Albert’s great-grandson, Emmanuel.
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012
Light gold. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of dried citrus fruits, quince and spices. Dry and linear, displaying very good depth and energy to its lemon, orange and orchard fruit flavors. Shows impressive clarity and precision on the minerally, spicy finish.
