CHÂTEAU RAYAS

LVT 2017 r 2017 wh Grandiose. The most fascinating wines you can encounter anywhere. STGT on the agenda, with extremely well cared for sandy vineyards, often in the form of leafy clos that retain the sun, and hands-off winemaking, the wines raised in extremely old mainly 600-litre, misshapen casks. Always late harvesting here, into November more and more in recent times, as Emmanuel wants a true ripeness. The 2018 vintage was a write-off due to the mildew, with just 400 litres of white Rayas, 800 litres of red Rayas, harvested on 28 November, 2018. The wines will not be launched on the market.

The Reynaud family also own the wonderful Côtes du Rhône Château de Fonsalette a little to the north, and the Vacqueyras Château des Tours, the latter very close to Rayas in its gentle, spiced features, and offering a very good red and white Côtes du Rhône as well.
