It’s big news when the greatest producer of Côte Rôtie wines in the world purchases holdings in Chateauneuf-du-Pape…  E. Guigal’s iconic trio of Côte Rôtie known as the “La La’s” (La Turque, La Mouline and La Landonne) earn regular 100 Point scores and go for hundreds of dollars per bottle.  Guigal has been producing Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines since the 1940’s with purchased fruit, the acquisition of Domaine De Nalyswill make them first-time growers in the area.  The deal includes 124 acres of vines in La Crau, Séneseau and Grand Pierre which are three of the greatest areas for Chateauneuf-du-Pape.  It always pays to get in on the ground floor with new projects and especially when it’s a project by Guigal.  This wine likely won’t be under $60 bucks for long.

The 2016 Saintes Pierres De Nalys was forged from vines averaging 45 years in age, from almost equal parts Nalys, La Crau, Bois Senechal vineyards.  The wine is incredibly elegant, attractive and absolutely profound with penetrating ripe cherry, boysenberry, dried spices, crushed stones and cocoa powder.  This wine absolutely should not be missed.

Description

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “The “second wine” of Nalys, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Saintes Pierres is a blend of 69% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Cinsault, 4% Muscardin, and 1% each Counoise and Mourvèdre. It was put together by the Guigal team, although the vinifications took place prior to the acquisition. It’s an attractive, full-bodied wine that delivers ripe cherries, a hint of stone fruit and very supple tannins.” 92 Points

From Jancis Robinson, “More overtly grapey aromas than the Guigal Châteauneuf, but the same substantial concentration and waxy texture. Melon and peach fruit on the long aftertaste. Achieves volume without distortion.” 17/20
