Estate

Since their very first vintage bottled under the Guigal name, in 1946, the Guigal family has produced a Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The terroirs of Nalys realize a dream spanning three generations to join this leading prestigious and historic appellation. A property of 125 contiguous acres, Nalys is comprised of three spectacular plots within three of the best vineyards in the appellation: the famous "La Crau", Nalys, and "Bois Senechal". Already listed in regional land registers at the end of the 16th century, Chateau de Nalys is one of the oldest properties in the appellation, and begins a new chapter in the hands of Guigal.

Vineyard

27% Nalys: fine, red sandstone and sandy clay, with some limestone and soft sandstone
50% La Crau: the famous galets, large round pebbles derived from the Rhone river
23% Bois Senechal: slightly smaller galets and sandier, less structured soils than La Crau

Wine

Three extraordinary vineyards coming together in an intensely expressive, utterly complete wine. The Grand Vin defines the estate style with a precision of fruit, spice and minerality and notably a beautifully composed structure that unfolds and builds (and builds). Notably, 50% of the blend comes from La Crau, which lends this structure. Primarily intense old vine Grenache, with a large portion of Syrah, and additions of several other varieties, including most of the estate’s Mourvedre.

WineMaking

Fermentation: Manual harvest and sorting followed by vinification in conical wooden vats, fermentation lasting around 4 weeks.
Aging: 18 months, of which 30% in wood (barrels and foudres) and 70% concrete.
