Domaine de Nalys Chateauneuf du Pape 2013


SKU 3770000037111


The classic cuvee from Domain de Nalys delivers a mix of raspberry, cherries, lavender, garrigue with a touch of olive. On the palate it is clean and focused, with a lovely fine silky texture and soft tannins which carry through into the velvety finish. This should continue to show well over the course of the next 6-8 years. Food Pairings: This wine can be served on a prime rib grilled on vine-shoots, duck breast or just on a nice plate of fine meats and mature cheeses.

Wine SpectatorA hint of warm brick gives way quickly to a core brimming with flavors of cassis and bitter cherry preserves. The finish is studded with anise, sage, singed alder and leather notes. Grippy, but offers plenty of flesh and fruit. Rock-solid. Best from 2018 through 2028. 5,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a strong showing for Nalys, surprisingly full-bodied and creamy-textured for the estate. Hints of wood char and roasted meat mark the nose, while the flavors of mocha and brown sugar carry through the plush, velvety finish. Drink now-2023.
