    Light red. Smells like a head shop, with captivating aromas of red berries, cherry, gingerbread, incense and dried flowers. Suave, palate-caressing raspberry and kirsch flavors gain weight and sweetness with air. Lush red and dark berry flavors cling endlessly on the long, sappy finish. Offers a compelling blend of richness and finesse.

    Second Chƒteauneuf from Ch Rayas already showing a broad array of aromas: liquorice, animal/gamey notes and rose petals. Transparent, but also rich and sweet. Wonderful freshness.

This legendary cellar grew to its fame through the efforts of the late Jacques Reynaud and is now run by his nephew, Emmanuel. The reds are mainly Grenache and reveal a solid concentration that reacts to aging by extracting layer upon layer of subtle texture and complexity. Most people tend to rave about the Rayas, but in our estimation, the Pignan (which is made up of the cuvees that didn't make the Rayas cut) is a terrific second wine that is such an extraordinary value that it should be purchased in case quantities. Often this unassuming wine can eclipse many a top Chateauneuf.
