2016 Domaine de Nalys  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 94

Loaded with ripe, spicy, sweet, luscious, rich, red fruits that come with nuances of herbs, lavender and kirsch. The wine is silky, fresh and loaded with red fruits from start to finish.

2016 Domaine de Nalys Le Châtaignier  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 95

Full, rich, deep and concentrated, there is intensity, purity, freshness and vibrancy that keeps this going from the initial sniff and sip, through to the finish. The wine is made from a Grenache dominated blend with Mourvedre and various assorted allowable grape varieties.

2016 Domaine de Nalys Reserve  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 96

Rich, with layers of smoke filled, ripe, sweet, polished, fresh red fruits. Cherries and plums are all over the place, with peppery, mineral driven accents. The wine is quite full bodied, due to the nature of it being dominated by Syrah. Give this some time in the cellar to show its best.

2015 Domaine de Nalys  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 89

Fresh, peppery, smoky red fruits with a blast of garrigue to make and keep things interesting. Medium bodied, soft and forward, the cherry filled center of fruit is not hard to find.

2015 Domaine de Nalys Le Châtaignier  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 91

The wine opens with a touch of smoke before moving to its spicy, red fruit side. Medium bodied, soft, forward and supple, the fruit is ripe, fresh and clean, leaving you with fresh, juicy kirsch and thyme on your palate. The wine is made from a blend of 91% Grenache, 8% Mourvedre and 1% assorted allowable grape varieties.

2015 Domaine de Nalys Reserve  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

Dark in color, smoke, incense and spice are the first things that greet you. From there you move to the dark cherry side of life. There is a tannic backbone here, due to the reliance of Syrah that means you will need to age this wine for at least a few years, before the freshness and sweet, red fruits are further developed. Made with a blend of 73% Syrah, 18% Grenache and 9% Mourvedre.

2011 Domaine de Nalys Le Châtaignier  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 89

Better on the garrigue, earth, pepper and red fruit nose than the medium bodied, red berry finish. From a blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Mourvedre, the wine reached 15% alcohol.

2010 Domaine de Nalys Reserve  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 89

Spicy, soft, open and forward with an array of red and black fruits. This traditional wine has an un-traditional blend as it’s produced with perhaps the highest proportion of Syrah in Chateauneuf du Pape at close to 70% of the blend.

2010 Domaine de Nalys  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 89

Light, polished, spicy, and focused on red cherries with fresh strawberry, this is best enjoyed in its youth.

1979 Domaine de Nalys  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 70

Well past its prime, the wine is tart, overly acidic. Much better on the nose than the palate, there is not much here.

1978 Domaine de Nalys  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

Served double blind, I was blown away to find this wine was almost 40 years of age! Still going strong, the lusty, kirsch, pepper and garrigue on the nose was just as strong as the rich, lusty, spicy, ripe fruits and earth in the finish.
