Chateauneuf-du-Pape at Costco
 
Yesterday bought a bottle of Kirkland's Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2005
produced and bottled by Domaine de Nalys and a bottle of Banfi 2001
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!

Thanks for the note, I read the bottle and it said that de nalys is one
of the leading (or similar claim that I should know them somehow) CdP
vinyards. I mentioned to the guy beside me, "Hmmm, I can think of twenty
or so names and none of them are these guys" but at $19.99 it might be
worth a bite.
