Chateau Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape 2008,  (WA93, ST93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Chateau Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape

Vintage: 2008
Region: France--Rhone--Chateauneuf du Pape
Appellation: Chateauneuf du Pape

WA93, ST93
Rated 93 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `A much lighter style of wine, but showing far better now that it has had some time in bottle, is Emmanuel Reynaud`s 2008 Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape. Medium ruby, with a classic nose of kirsch liqueur intermixed with Provencal herbs, sandy, loamy soil notes, some licorice and steak tartare, this wine is fleshy, medium to full-bodied, round, generous, and surprisingly seductive and luscious. I wouldn`t be surprised if many tasters prefer this over the bigger, richer, more structured and potentially far greater 2007, at least for the next 4-5 years. This is a sensational effort and one of the finest wines of the vintage, the most challenging year in Chateauneuf du Pape since the historical deluge in 2002.` -- Robert Parker in the 11/1/2012 issue of the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The current releases of Fonsalette include the 2007 and 2008 Cotes du Rhone, as the 2009s will not be released until next year, and the 2010s the year after.`
