External Reviews for Rayas Pignan Chateauneuf du Pape
The single vineyard, Pignan, comes from an old parcel of vines planted in rocky soils. This is considered to be the more approachable of the Rayas reds. It boasts kirsch liqueur, lavender and licorice on the palate. A more delicate vintage that's yielded an elegance all-around.
