20,000 Followers!? A year ago as a wine lover who couldn’t even use the word “blogger” (🤮), I would have struggled to believe that. But a lot of you have been asking how to get started with a wine blog while working a full time job. I’m excited to share more of my tips and experiences in the New Year! In the meantime, TGIF! 🍇💃🏻🍷

After a mere 25 years looking in Chateauneuf-du-Pape to acquire the best suited estate in the region, Guigal has found what they were looking for in an estate they would have never guessed themselves. Domaine de Nalys, simply renamed Château de Nalys to mark the start of a rebirth, has been officially announced on Monday, November 5th. Nalys was owned by the gigantic insurance company Groupma since 1975. Obviously, after 33 years under such uninvolved owner ship, the estate had suffered from lack of investment and development. However, upon an uninterested visit, Philippe Guigal fell completely in Love, not with the winery or the estate’s image, but with the amazing vineyard.
With the potential and their know-how, the Guigal has already started to work on the estate difficult areas to bring the best of it. Concerning the winemaking facilities, the plan is to bring everything down and start new. In the vineyards, what was urgent and imperative was to fill in the gaps. Vines had not been replanted and tended carefully and with an overhead view, you could see holes in the vineyard.This will be the first steps towards success.
The specificity that were particuliarly suited with Guigal was the percentage of white grapes planted. Dr. Duffays helped to make the white wines of the appellation known, and it represent 17% of the production. It’s huge in comparison with the rest of the appellation which is around 5%. All 13 grape varieties are planted on the vineyards between three different plots surrounding the Château, the first of which takes the name of the estate: “Nalys” and the others sit on two of the great terroirs of the appellation: “le Bois Sénéchal”, a lieu-dit of which they own 75% and a northern part of “La Crau”. La Turque 2013
Again, 2013 is strongly showing its personality. Côte Brune and especially LA turque is already originally on spices, tannins and strength. However, 2013 brings it to a whole new level. Like Phillipe Guigal said:” It’s a Côte Brune that is very Brune”.
