Grape Varietal: Grenache and Syrah

Country & Region: France | Rhone Valley

Alcohol Level (%): 14.5

Bottle Size: 750ml

Made from equal proportions of grapes from the Château’s three plots, the blend is dominated by Grenache (2/3) and Syrah (1/4). Cinsault, Muscardin, Counoise and Mourvèdre bring complexity to the wine. Aged primarily in stainless steel tank, it is elegant and punchy with seductive aromas of fresh fruits. The red Saintes Pierres de Nalys is a wonderful expression of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation with round and generous tannins and lovely frame. Enjoyed young, it is full of richness and freshness.

2017

Wine Advocate 91-93: The final blends had been made at Nalys, although the wine was scheduled to be bottled after my visit. The 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Saintes Pierres is fruity and ripe, with scents of mint, black cherries and purple raspberries. Full-bodied and velvety textured, it finishes with ample length and a touch of licorice. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes.

James Suckling 91: A grassy and fresh white with roughly 50% clairette, this has lemons and some lightly grassy nuances with a smooth palate that has melon-pastry flavors and smooth texture.

2019

Wine Advocate 92: Pretty raspberry and strawberry shadings appear on the nose of the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Saintes Pierres, joined by pie cherries and slightly herbal notions of garrigue. It's medium to full-bodied, with a silky texture and a firm, gently tannic finish.

James Suckling 91: Aromas of lilies, green apples and elderberries. Medium-bodied. Rather crisp. Fresh and bright with some nice driving acidity. Oyster shell and lemon peel. Restrained. 36% clairette, 29% bourbolenc, 25% grenache blanc, 7% roussanne, 3% picardan.
