Domaine de Nalys, Eicelenci, Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2015 92 SF 93 LR 90 MW 93 £36 Davy’s Blossom, honeysuckle and peach kernel on the nose; the mouthfeel is impressive. There’s lots of puppy fat to it, giving body and power. White pepper and lime are behind orchard fruit flavours on the palate. It’s a balanced and powerful wine.

The Wine Society A wine that is so full of youthful energy! Its stone fruit character, orange peel and yellow peach complement its rather spicy edge. There’s an almost salty, mineral feel on the finish, which makes it powerful and long, but refined.

The Imperial Wine Co The salty mineral aroma on the nose is followed by flowers, plums and green apples. This is really very fresh on the palate, revealing hints of fennel and liquorice, and a mango flavoured custard character on the finish.
