Château de Nalys Blanc Grand Vin 2017 (17.5 JR)
“Creamier and more sweetly spiced than their Saintes Pierres, with plush, lush texture and great fragrance. Lavish oak, but it’s not ostentatious. The orchard fruit of the Roussanne comes through clearly.”
Château de Nalys
Guigal's mastery of growing and producing white wine varieties in the Rhône Valley is exemplified in this wine of immense breadth and power, elegance and expression. Intensely aromatic nose of white flowers, citrus and a touch of vanilla, on the palate the presence is undeniably penetrating, with a deep minerality joining the notes above.
Since its creation in 1946 by Etienne Guigal, the Guigal family has produced a Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The terroirs of Nalys realize a dream spanning three generations to join this leading prestigious and historic appellation. Marcel and Philippe Guigal will bring passion and rigour, their family quality philosophy, and the ambition of waving the flag of Châteauneuf-du-Pape at the very highest level.
