Domaine De Nalys Châteauneuf-Du-Pape
Multi-awarded red. This classic cuvée comes from three terroirs, the first one being Nalys, located at the border of sandstone limestones and safres soils on the old stony alluvial soils of the Rhône, the famous rolled pebbles. This sector produces wines of great finesse with silky, round tannins and a nice freshness.
The Domaine de Nalys is one of the rare domains comprising the 13 grape varieties of the appellation - Grenache, Syrah and other grape varieties: Mourvèdre, Vaccarère, Counoise, Cinsault, Terret Noir and Muscardin.
AOC/AOP regulated/protected designation of origin
Region: Vallée du Rhône, Rhône méridional
With its dark and deep ruby red color, it has intense notes of red and black berries with spices. Beautiful taste in silky tannins, power and elegance. A very expressive, noble and complete wine.
Excellent pairing with grilled red meats or in sauce, game, or mature cheese platter.
