The meeting of a great terroir and great vigneron More info
Produced from the fantastic terroir of “La Crau”, traditional soils of rounded pebbles, this blend is composed of a majority of Grenache and Syrah. The harvests are manual and the vinifications take place in wooden vats. The élevage lasts 18 months in casks and barrels. The wine has a superb ruby colour. The nose is intense, redolent with aromas of red fruits and spices. The wine has a wonderful mouthfeel; powerful, tannic and expressive.
Domaine de Nalys is made up of around 50 hectares of vines to the east of the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, planted on the three great terroirs of Castepapal. They all lie on hillsides on the way to Courthézon. The previous owner, doctor Duffays, contributed to making this appellation's white wines known, which represent 15% of production. At the end of July 2017, the Guigal house announced that it had bought the damine de Nalys from Groupama. Located in the southern part of the Rhone valley, it had belonged to the group since 1975. This purchase allowed Guigal to set up definitively in the south, where it had previously just ran a merchant business. Domaine de Nalys sells around 300,000 bottles a year in collaboration with 40 other winemakers in the area. Nowadays, a dozen winemakers cultivate 13 grape varieties on the domain (Grenache gris, noir and blanc, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsaut, Counise, Muscardin, Vaccarèse, Terret noir, Clairette, Roussane, Bourboulenc, Picardan, Piquepoul) following low-intervention agricultural methods.
