Behind the Wine Bar

December 13, 2018

Chilled Magazine featured the Château de Nalys Grand Vin Rouge 2016 and Grand Vin Blanc 2017 in the column “Behind the Wine Bar,” which appeared in the magazine’s December issue. Writer Gina Farrell noted that these are new wines from the Guigal family and described specific tasting notes for each. She highlighted that the Grand Vin Rouge “balances fruit, spice and minerality for a wine in the true Château de Nalys style,” while the Grand Vin Blanc “exemplifies the finest qualities of the white wine grapes grown in the Rhône Valley.” Bottle shots of each wine were included in the story, enclosed here:

    Guigal's mastery of growing and producing white wine varieties in the Rhone Valley is exemplified in this wine of immense breadth and power, elegance and expression.  Intensely aromatic nose of white flowers, citrus and a touch of vanilla, on the palate the presence is undeniably penetrating, with a deep minerality joining the notes above.
