Chateau de Nalys Château de Nalys Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grand Vin 2017 (95 WA) (93-95)

“To be bottled in November, I sampled the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Grand Vin on two occasions (once blind), with consistent notes. Black cherry and raspberry fruit dominate, although subtle notions of garrigue and peppery spice add interest. It’s full-bodied, round and mouthfilling, lush, supple, silky and long. A blend of 51% Grenache, 36% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre and 1% Counoise, almost half is maturing in concrete tanks, with another big chunk in foudres. Less than a third is in barrels or demi-muids.”
