The Tennessean wine writer Steve Prati has highlighted the Chateau de Nalys 2016 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Grand Vin and 2017 Grand Vin Blanc in his latest column, syndicated across the USA Today network. In the column, “Buy wine like a pro: Save time, money by putting together a mixed case,” Steve elaborates on why it makes sense to purchase mixed cases of wine at various price points at local wine shops as they are likely to offer discounts, which increases the value. He suggests trying wines from the Southern Rhone, describing the wines from Chateauneuf du Pape as “prized around the world for their quality fruit and old world elegance.” He continued by recommending the new Chateau de Nalys wines from the Guigal family as “outstanding examples” from the region.

Château de Nalys
Guigal's mastery of growing and producing white wine varieties in the Rhone 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.
