2009 - Rayas, Chateau des Tours Blanc
- Cote du Rhone
- 92 RP
Fashioned from 100% late harvested Grenache Blanc, the 2009 Cotes du Rhone Blanc displays citrus oil, mango and nectarine characteristics in an exotic, ripe, full-bodied style. This naked, natural effort contains little sulphur, no wood (it is aged completely in tank) and a long finish. It is impossible to know how long it will last, but it is certainly impressive. I would opt for drinking it over the next 3-4 years. This is the home estate of Emmanuel Reynaud, who has been producing the wines of Rayas since 1997. A relatively large estate of nearly 100 acres, Domaine des Tours fashions some remarkable value priced reds and whites.
