2009 - Chateau Rayas, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Pignan
- Chateauneuf du Pape
The 2009 Pignan Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the strongest examples of this wine I have tasted in recent years. This medium to dark ruby-hued offering exhibits glorious, sweet notes of strawberry and black cherry jam intermixed with nori (the seaweed wrapper used in sushi restaurants), licorice, lavender and incense. Deep, full-bodied and supple textured, this 1,000-case cuvee is already irresistible.
