Winemaker Notes

This wine possesses intense ruby-purple and red, ruby tints. The nose gives way to jammy red fruits, toasted notes, and light, gamey notes. Fleshy and weighty, morello cherry and black pepper are present on the palate. Drinkable now, but this wine will keep for another 6 to 8 years.

Domaine de Nalys
Domaine de Nalys belonged to a family with the same name until the French Revolution. It was then bought by a Châteauneuf-du- Pape family who would tend it for seven generations.

This family´s last owner was certainly the most famous in the form of Philippe Dufays; a Medical Doctor, he came to the region during the Second World War and married the heir to Nalys. The Domaine, then in a terrible state, received all his tender loving care and Philippe Dufays soon gave up practising medicine to take charge of it full-time in 1955.

An enthusiastic bon vivant, the "Doctor" as his close circle called him, devoted all his know-how, scientific logic and heritage to this Domaine; he knew how to surround himself with competent and trustworthy associates, totally committed to their work and capable of running experiments with him on vineyard techniques and winemaking processes; if these were hotly contested at the start, after a few successful vintages they became the reference-point in the Appellation.

Thus Doctor Dufays developed Nalys with panache for around twenty years, which practically doubled in size and was sold in numerous countries abroad, especially the United States. After his only son died in an accident and during a period of severe viticulture crisis, Doctor Dufays decided in 1975 to part company with Nalys.

So Nalys was sold partly to young winegrowers and partly nowadays to the Mutual Agriculture Insurance company, Groupama.

Today Domaine de Nalys is a fifty hectare estate (128 acres) grouped together into three plots: "Nalys" or the parcel circling the estate, "Le Bois Sénéchal" and "La Crau"; they´re found on two of the Appellation´s major terroirs with on the one hand, for La Crau and Le Bois Sénéchal: soils made up of rounded pebbles with weathered sandstone subsoils dating from the pliocene era as well as well-drained sandy terraces, and on the other hand, for "Nalys": soils lying on an older geological vein dating from the middle miocene era composed of rust-coloured, Comtat molasse sandstone with sandy texture.

Varieties planted

All of the Appellation´s thirteen permitted grape varieties are represented in the vineyard. They allow us, linked to the terrain they´re grown on, to bring greater complexity and balance to the wine. In this respect, Domaine de Nalys is also tracking an experimental vineyard planted with the 13 varieties, working alongside the relevant authorities.

La Crau, Grenache, June 2007

Out of the red grapes, Grenache dominates with 60% of plantings while Syrah makes up, and has done now for around 30 years, almost 25% of plantings. Next come the 6 other varieties: Counoise, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Muscardin, Vaccarèse and Black Terret.

Whites varieties account for 20% under vine on the estate, and we work with all six of the Appellation´s white grapes: White Grenache, Clairette and Bourboulenc in addition to, in smaller proportions, Roussanne, Picardan and Picpoul.
