Yesterday bought a bottle of Kirkland's Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2005

Brunello di Montalcino to compare.

Wondering how badly they will compare -- hmm.

Dom. de Nalys is a reputable estate in CdP, producing a rather
commercial, forward wine IME. '05 is a good year, however, where even
lesser operations might make a great wine. I happened to see a note in
a WS forum:

that is very positive about this wine.

Let us know what you think!
