    Cuvée presentation

    This Syrah cuvée comes from a blend of three soils: l’Ermite, Le Sabot and the prestigious terroir of les Bessards. As for all the wines of the Maison, Marquise de la Tourette benefits from careful care and attention: harvested by hand, terroir by terroir, prolonged barrel ageing (14 to 16 months) on wood from one to three years. This prevents marking the wine too much in its early years. This cuvée offers up powerful and intense aromas of ripe black fruit (blackcurrant, blueberry), blended with subtle hints of spices and vanilla. The palate, firm but unctuous, even creamy, reveals notes of truffle and pleasant minerality.

    Information about domain Château Rayas

    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.
