Château de Nalys Saintes Pierres de Nalys Blanc 2017 (92 JD)

“Starting with the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Saintes Pierres de Nalys Blanc, which is the younger vine cuvée of the estate and is based largely on Clairette, this beauty offers clean, crisp notes of white peach, white flowers, and salty minerality. It’s clean, has terrific balance, and a nicely chiseled, focused style, and despite being the entry-level wine, is serious stuff.”

    The second white wine to the Château de Nalys Grand Vin Blanc has a character all its own, with a strongly different varietal and plot composition, and like its red Saintes Pierres counterpart, a fermentation, and aging geared towards emphasizing freshness. The hallmark seamlessness of Guigal’s white wines is especially evident in this wine, which is unlike any Châteauneuf white we have experienced in its grace and lift.
