Give it a hard decent and let the funk blow off. Will rose about 30ish minutes. Then enjoy your hard earned money with a beautiful Grenache. Lovely. Hard to swallow the price but the chest puffing you get to do the next day is almost worth it. 🤣

Wedged in between the monumental 2005 and 2007 this wine is more delicate but again a true Rayas. Perfect balance, strong kirsch tones and this endless perfume which comes with a sexy Rayas. Reynaud and Bonneau two opposite wines, both great, for me forget all the rest in red chateauneuf. What a joy and privilege to be allowed to drink this.

Very Burgundian and quite emotional wine! In a beautiful spot but no rush to enjoy this. Easily will make old bones.

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!
