CHATEAU RAYAS

No estate in the Southern Rhone has received as much acclaim as Château Rayas. Much of this centred on the late Jacques Reynaud, an eccentric genius who generated more myths than just about any other vigneron in the world. But these myths would be of little interest were it not for the superlative quality of wines that Jacques produced. Visitors quickly discover that the secret here is not clever winemaking...and certainly not state of the art equipment ! Rather it is about a unique terroir, and very old vines.
The resultant wines are not deeply coloured, or overtly powerful. But it is rare to find any wine in the world that can rival them for intensity and persistence. Rayas always needs many years to show its full potential, but the recent vintages made by Emmanuel Reyanaud, Jacques' nephew, are developing well and suggest the domaine has as bright a future as its past.
