Domaine de Nalys Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2012
Very inky dark in the glass. Some leathery aromas, but also spicy ones--cinnamon? Quite smooth on the palate--surprisingly little puckery tannin. Fairly light bodied. Front of the tongue experience give the expectation of fruit, but the expectation does not come to pass. Very interesting. Certainly, easy to drink. There might even be something that white-wine-only drinkers who might go for this. US$19.99 at Costco.Add winemaker's notes
It´s a way of seeing things, being open to new ideas, never taking anything for granted, not being afraid of new technology and knowing how to adapt it to our terrain´s unique features to coax the very best out of it.

External Reviews for Domaine de Nalys Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc
White Châteauneuf is extremely rare, and rich yet balanced examples such as this one are even rarer. Full of peach and white flower with a pleasing viscosity that is the result of partial barrel fermentation.
Dom. de Nalys produces some of the more approachable examples of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This red is made mostly from Grenache and Syrah, with small quantities of ten other grape varieties. Plum and spice notes lead to velvety tannins on the finish.
Dom. de Nalys is one of the more approachable Châteauneuf du Pape. Made from mostly Grenache and Syrah, with 10 other varietals in small quantities. Plum and spice notes, with velvet tannins on the finish.
Focused, with nice cut to the red currant, floral and incense flavors, backed by darker plum and licorice notes that expand on the finish. Shows the ripe, friendly profile of the vintage. Drink now through 2015.
A pretty Châteauneuf, this has freshness to its raspberry fruit and a slight floral note that gives delicacy to its firm, stony structure. It’s light for the appellation but lush, ready for pork roasts.
Bright ruby. Fresh red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by tobacco and garrigue nuances. Energetic and spicy, with good mineral cut to the sweet red berry flavors. This taut wine needs some time to gain flesh but looks pretty promising.
Deep ruby. Vibrant red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by fresh rose, lavender and baking spices. Therersquo;s something seductively pinot-like about this, with its sweet strawberry and raspberry flavors possessing good depth and delineation and finishing with impressive sappy persistence. It would be no sin to start drinking this soon after release.
