Château Rayas has always projected an image of secrecy and seclusion. The vines are planted on the most unusual terroir in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, where the soils are extremely sandy and there is a more northerly exposure. Grenache is harvested late and aged in concrete to produce a hedonistic, long-ageing wine that is arguably the most sought-after in the south of France.

Tasting notes:
‘I have followed the Fonsalette Cotes du Rhones since the mid-1960s, and it is a candidate for one of the finest and longest-lived Cotes du Rhones in nearly every top vintage. Emmanuel Reynaud has made a wonderful 2007 that displays terrific Provencal character with large quantities of kirsch, lavender, licorice, roasted herbs and some pepper and meatiness. It is medium to full-bodied, relatively evolved for a Fonsalette, but don’t let that confuse you, because this wine will age for 10-15 years at the very minimum. ’ – Robert M. Parker, Jr, The Wine Advocate, 91/100
