About the producer

Château Rayas is one of the great names of French wine. Many connoisseurs believe it to be the best in the appellation. The domain was established relatively recently (the vineyards were planted in the early 1920s) by Louis Reynaud who quickly distinguished himself from the typical practices of Châteauneuf du Pape. In this traditionally sun-baked region, one section of the vineyard faces north and the vines here benefit from the refreshing qualities of the pine trees that grow around the property. Louis Reynaud also focused primarily on just one grape variety, Grenache, even though 13 are permitted within the appellation. His son Jacques, who was seen as unconventional, if not eccentric, took over the business and achieved new heights of quality with the wines through traditional techniques. Today, Château Rayas is managed by his nephew Emanuel Reynaud.

About the wine

Made from Grenache and Clairette, Château Rayas's white wine undergoes nine months' élevage in barrels. Powerful, full-bodied and highly concentrated, it can boast significant keeping potential.
