This is a really fine ambassador for the appellation – a very classical, traditional Haut-Médoc.
This is a lustrous, deep, ruby-garnet. Ripe red and black fruit comes through on the nose, generous and appetising. Richly-textured, there is optimal balance of succulent fruit, rounded tannins and fresh acidity delicate spiced and underpinned by a crushed stone minerality. The finish is succulent and moderately long.
Domaine de Nalys is rare for growing all 13 grape varieties permitted in the appellation, which gives its wines great complexity. This special, old vine cuvée is wonderfully rich and lush, reflecting the ripeness of an excellent vintage.
