Information
 


In the heart of the southern Rhône Valley appellation vineyards, Emmanuel Reynaud offers up his Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée wines featuring Châteauneuf du Pape, Côtes du Rhône, Vacqueyras and Côtes du Rhône Village. Both red and white, these wines are the fruit of the vineyards of a number of different domains: Château Rayas, Château Fonsalette and Château des Tours signed the Reynaud family, wine-growers from one generation to the next since 1880. Today these wines are matured in the cellars of two estates Château Rayas and Château des Tours.

[Château Fonsalette] A large property with a dozen or so hectares of vines, woods, agricultural land and olive trees. The grape varieties are: Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah for red and Grenache, Clairette and Marsanne for white. The grapes are vinified and sold at Rayas.

The 2005 Fonsalette Cotes du Rhone is a blockbuster. This blend of 50% Grenache, 35% Cinsault, and 15% Syrah has a dark ruby/purple color and a beautifully structured style with notes of black truffle, licorice, black currant, and sweet cherry intermixed with some crushed rock and flowers. The wine is beautifully broad, savory, and exceptionally well-delineated and focused. This is a magnificent wine that should be at its best between 2010 and 2025. (RobertParker.com)
