For me, Rayas is a semi-religious experience almost every time I (rarely) get to drink it. Check out these small lots we just got in!!

Dear Oenophile,

When you have a 30,000 square foot warehouse, things arrive and then that get put on the back burner. But THESE....these need to be up front!!! Just compare our prices....!

2006 CHATEAU RAYAS --- $449! wow!

No words or scores needed!! KILLER price for this Rayas!

2007 BEAUCASTEL CHATEAUNEUF HOMMAGE A JACQUES PERRIN --- $475!! WA100

"The star of the show was the 2007 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin, which in this vintage is a classic blend of 60% Mourvedre, 20% Syrah, and the rest Counoise and Grenache. Inky colored and insanely perfumed, with to-die-for notes of lavender, Provencal herbs, roasted meats, black cherries, truffle, crème de cassis and licorice, it flows onto the palate with massive concentration, a stunning mid-palate and a thick, rich texture that never gets heavy or cumbersome. This is blockbuster stuff that just could not get any better. Drink it anytime over the coming 3-4 decades."

2009 CLOS ST. CHATEAUNEUF JEAN DEUX EX MACHINA --- $219!! WA99

"In contrast (and almost as good), the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Deus ex Machina is an extroverted, open and insanely perfumed effort that boasts killer blackberry and kirsch-styled fruit to go with layers of spring flowers, exotic spice and graphite. As are all of these efforts, it’s full-bodied, deeply concentrated and textured on the palate, with masses of sweet tannin. It will be better in a couple years and evolve gracefully for two decades, but it’s hard to resist right now."

.......and many more high-end Rhones below! Have a great weekend!

Clos St. Jean Chateauneuf du Pape Deus Ex Machina -- 2009 750ml

 

WA99

Rated 99 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Also spectacular, but more evolved, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Deus-Ex Machina reveals classic Provencal scents of roasted herbs, lavender, charcuterie, blackberries, licorice, kirsch and bouquet garni. This super-complex, layered, multidimensional wine possesses remarkable purity and richness as well as silky tannins. One of the most open-knit and forward Deus-Ex Machinas made to date, it will be difficult to resist when young, and should age well for 20+ years.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate:` ...

Chateau Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape -- 2006

 

WA93, ST94, WS93

Rated 94 points by Stephen Tanzer`s International Wine Cellar: `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.`
