Hi Laurent

Rayas and Beaucastel were the two wines that taught me the greatness of Chateauneuf du Pape. I still remember my first Rayas, it was the 1983!

I love 1990 Rayas! But over the past few years, 1989 for me has become a better wine. There seems to be more there in the palate and fragrance.

1990 turned out to be more accessible than the monumental, male 1989, Jeff !
1990 is closer to 2002 ou 1992.
1989 resembles more 1995.

Discussing the style (the nephew vs the uncle) is interesting, too !
For instance, 2001 is great, very massive and stil very elegant.
