Lot #407. Château Rayas Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réservé 1998

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 95 JL.
"Ready to go, the wine is medium bodied, elegant, fresh, sweet and pure. There is a peppery, herbal complexity that adds to the black raspberry and kirsch notes that make up the central core of the wine. The wine lacks the levels of density found in the the best vintages of Rayas, but there is still more than ample, sweet, silky, fresh fruits in every sip, making this a treat to taste." Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider, Aug 2016
Provenance: The Mont Blanc Cellar
Notes: Inventory sticker on capsules, 1 very lightly scuffed, 1 very lightly torn label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,100
