Region Chateauneuf-du-Pape

The most famous appellation of the region with a history of viticulture dating back to 1308, Châteauneuf-du-Pape is renowned for producing complex, spicy, full-bodied red wines of power and concentration. Up to 18 different varieties can be employed to make wine in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but the vast majority of the red wine blends are still dominated by varying proportions of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The greatest wines of the appellation can cellar for well over two decades. A smaller amount of complex, fuller bodied white wine, blended from Grenache Blanc, Rousanne, Clairette and Bourboulenc is also made.

Winery CHATEAU RAYAS

Chateau Rayas is a family owned estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape considered one of the super-stars of the region. It was made famous by the legendary winemaker Jacques Reynaud and now continues under the management of his nephew Emmanuel. The estate comprises 13 hectares of north facing vineyards on sandy soils with chalk patches, planted with low yielding Grenache bush vines. Alongside the renowned red Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the estate also produces a second wine called Pignan and a white Châteauneuf-du-Pape produced from Grenache Blanc and Clairette.
