|Grapes||Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre|
|Sub-district||Côtes du Rhône|
One of the big names of the southern Rhône is Château Rayas in Châteaneuf-du-Pape. Château Rayas is managed by Emmanuel Reynaud who lives and makes the wine at Château des Tours at Sarrians, a village between Châteaneuf-du-Pape and Vacqueyras, entitled to neither monicker, hence the apparently lowly Côtes du Rhône appellation. Grenache (80%) and Syrah (20%). It’s everything a Rhône red should be – deep, seductive berry fruit with a generous helping of spice. It manages to be both full and rich, and supple and silky. Alongside all the hearty generosity of classic Rhône wines, there is a more subtle seductive charming texture to the wine. As Charles Lea says “it is as close as Grenache can get to Pinot Noir in some ways”. L&S (Jul 2018)

Château des Tours
Emmanuel Reynaud is the fourth generation of wine growers and took over from his father at Château des Tours in 1997 and also at the famous Chateau Rayas after the death of his uncle Jacques Reynaud. His wines are based upon very old Grenache vines, giving wines of little colour but great intensity of aroma and flavour.
