Chateau Rayas 'Pignan' Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2005

The ‘Pignan’ cuvée from Rhone legend Chateau Rayas accounts for 20% of the estate’s production, hailing from predominantly separate vineyards. Sweet, floral aromas lead way to a lively, bright palate with approachable tannins.

Ubiquitous red grown all over France; Spain (Garnacha); Italy (Cannonau) and the New World. Pale in color but otherwise a hardy richly fruity colossus in blends and varietal wines alike.
