Winemaker Notes

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.

Food Pairings – red meats either grilled or cooked in sauces, game birds, or aged cheeses.

About Château de Nalys

Already mentioned in the municipal cadastre at the end of the 16th century, this property is one of the oldest in the appellation. The Château de Nalys takes its name from the first operator, Jacques Nalis, farmer general of the Archdiocese of Avignon. From 1633, he was entrusted with the operation of a barn surrounded by land and vines, the cradle of the current estate. The Nalis family then vinifies their harvest on site and keeps the estate until the French Revolution. Subsequently, the estate is sold to a family from Châteauneuf-du-Pape who will operate it for seven generations. One of its last members and certainly the most famous was Doctor Philippe Dufays. Doctor of medicine, he arrived in the region during World War II and married the heiress of Nalys. Passionate, the “Doctor” so called by those around him, devoted all his knowledge and his heritage to this property. For nearly twenty years, Doctor Dufays will develop Nalys, double its surface area and extend its marketing in a number of foreign countries. In 1975, following the accidental death of his son, Doctor Dufays decided to separate from Nalys, which was then sold to Groupama insurance.

In 2017, the Guigal Family acquired Château de Nalys, charmed by the exceptional character of its terroirs and its prestigious past.
