Medium red. Vibrant strawberry, raspberry, anise and floral aromas could fill a room. Juicy and sharply delineated, offering sweet red berry and cherry preserve flavors with compelling accents of licorice, sassafras, lavender and smoky minerals. Extremely elegant wine with outstanding finishing cut and persistence. Not many grand cru Burgundies could match this for finesse. Vinous Media, Josh Raynolds

My first Rayas and hopefully not my last. Such a delicate expression that no other CDP producer can do as well!

Hitting all kinds of spots. Yum , yum. Could use another couple of years but with 30 minutes of breath it was singing.

Tasty bottle of juice. Definitely not the 07 but tasty either way. Needed a bit of time to open up but Rayas is always a favorite.

'06. Bowls of fresh red raspberries and wild strawberries. Light on its toes but great depth and length throughout the finish. Always will remind me of Richard Betts' passion and teaching me about Grenache w purity. THX U!

I thought this vintage would be ready. Probably down spot, but tasty all the same.

The greatest deal I've ever gotten in a restaurant. I'm afraid I can't tell you where.

If anybody harbors doubts about whether or not the Chateau Rayas southern Rhone estate is back on track after the passing of the great Jean Reynaud in the mid 90s need only have a whiff and a sip of this glorious wine to be totally convinced--HALLELUJAH!

The new generation at #Rayas is showing great finesse and subtlety--no Bret bomb here--just a perfectly balance bottle of Grenache!
