Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Château Rayas "La Pialade" Côtes du Rhône. Château Rayas is among the indisputable royalty in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and the prices that their wines command reflect this reverence among collectors and aficionados. However, they also make a handful of thoroughly outstanding bottlings from their younger vines under a Côtes du Rhône AOC designation. La Pialades is composed almost entirely of fruit from young Grenache vines with a touch of both Syrah and Cinsault. The Châteauneuf wines from Rayas are famous for their refined elegance and structure, and this CdR is no different. It's a wine that is ageworthy far beyond its supposed level quality (by AOC standards, anyway), and it's a remarkable introduction to the essence of one of the world's greatest wine domaines.
