Chateau Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve 2000
9.5 stars
20 Mar 2021

Rayas rightfully is the king of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, along with Henri Bonneau’s Celestins, they’re the two kingpin of CDP. You have to try very hard to find a disappointing Rayas. 2000 is an excellent vintage for CDP. Aroma of dense black tea, spice cake and dried fruits. Content was firmly chauvinistic, big and bold, very intense wine. Perhaps a bit too early to pop open this bottle, I will age it for another two decades to let it mellow down a bit.
