Winemaker Notes

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.

Deep, dark and dense red color. An intense nose of red and black berries and spice. A beautiful composition, with silky tannins, power and elegance. Expressive, noble and complete.

Pair with red meats either grilled or cooked in sauces, game birds, or aged cheeses.

Blend: 59% Grenache, 32% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 3% Counoise, 1% Vaccarèse

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95 Points

Destined to become Nalys's new flagship (unless the white version steals the show), the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Grand Vin is a blend of 59% Grenache, 32% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 3% Counoise and 1% Vaccarèse. It's full-bodied and velvety, offering hints of vanilla and sandalwood, but there also are layers of dark cherry fruit. Subtle notes of cinnamon, clove and allspice add interest to the long, silky finish. It's an auspicious debut for the Guigal team.
