2000 Chateau Rayas "Fonsalette" Cotes du Rhone
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The deep ruby-colored 2000 Fonsalette Cotes du Rhone offers gorgeously seductive aromas of sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with pepper and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, soft, and silky, it is best drunk over the next 7-8 years.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Good full red-ruby. High-toned aromas of raspberry, leather and spice. Silky and aromatic in the mouth, with bright fruit and subtle hints of leather and minerals. Slightly dry but persistent and aromatic on the end.
