    Cuvée presentation

    With its plot located on the edge of the iconic Château Rayas, Pignan has characteristics that clearly contribute to the quality of its wines. For this reason, it is vinified separately. There is a classic soil of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation, however richer in pebbles and clay. Very different from other wines of the appellation, this red Pignan is breath-taking in his finesse and elegance. Its nose is delicate but complex. Yields are low. We know little about the vinification since for Emmanuel Reynaud: "Wine is simple, it is fruit in its element. That's all”.

    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.
