Glistening ruby. Spice-accented dark berries and cherry on the nose, along with suggestions of garrigue and smoky minerals. Juicy blackberry, cherry cola and lavender flavors provide very good palate coverage and turn spicier with air. The floral note carries through a clinging, energetic finish shaped by smooth, well-knit tannins. 92pts Vinous
The Guigal Family owns and produces some of the most sought after and collectible wines and vineyards in the Rhone Valley. They are most known for their Northern Rone Cote Rotie “La La’s”, La Mouline, La Turque and La Landonne, which are liquid gold and grace the shelves of the finest cellars and wine lists in the world, having countless 100 point scores and insane global demand. They just recently made the cover of the trades, having purchased the legendary Chateau de Nalys in Chateauneuf du Pape, and today we were able to jump to the front of the line on their 2017 Guigal de Nalys Chateauneuf du Pape Saints Pierre. De Naly’s is a historical estate in the eastern sector of Chateauneuf du Pape. The name comes from the original founders of the estate who owned the property in the 1700’s. They were one of the first to bottle and sell their own wines back in 1955. The vintage is a buy 2017, which was given 94pts from Parker’s WA. It is absolutely singing in the bottle. To add to the offer, we have the wine for 33% off with free shipping on a case, which saves an additional $36.00. Chateauneuf du Pape is a perfect wine for the fall and holiday season, so this offer will not last long. Highly recommend.
The Guigal family acquired Château de Nalys, convinced of the exceptional quality of its terroirs. As they went deeper into the property (pictured right), the property almost seemed destined for the Guigals. 26% of the vineyards is planted with Syrah, a grape varietal that is of course at the very heart of the Northern Rhone Guigal family’s work. The wine is seemless, with glorious richness and concentration. At this price I am recommending to All!
