Guigal Chateau De Nalys Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge 2018

Product description

#10 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2021

Deep, dark, dense red with an intense nose of red and black berries and spice. The palate is beautiful, with silky tannins, power and elegance. Overall, the wine is expressive, noble and complete.

97 Points - Wine Enthusiast

The flagship wine of de Nalys is sourced from the famed La Crau vineyard. This powerful, complex red highlights Grenache, augmented by Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise and Vacarèse. Matured partially in oak, it offers black-plum flavours muted by shades of earth, sun-scorched garrigue and a lingering vein of salty minerality. While soft in tannin, the wine needs time to tease out its smoky, stony nuances.

95 Points - Wine Spectator

A bright savoury note leads off this red, followed quickly by sanguine and bay leaf accents, melding nicely with the core of steeped blackberry, raspberry and plum fruit flavours as they move through the rich, licorice root–tinged finish. Best from 2022 through 2035.
