Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge 2015

Product description

The dark, deep, inky color of the wine shows immediately the concentration of the vintage. Nose of blackcurrants, black tea and dried flowers definitely stands out. The mouth is rich, fruity and velvety with an incredibly layered tannin structure. The wine is balanced, pure, really intense and long with incredible ageing potential.

93 Points - James Suckling    An impressive nose with beautifully expressed ripe red cherry and raspberry fruits amid hints of wild herbs and subtly played spicy oak. The palate is seamless and holds pure red cherry and raspberry fruit long. Drink now.

93 Points - Wine & Spirits    Oak spice wraps into the pure red-berry fruit of this wine, creating a steaky, savory Châteauneuf. Pulled from organically farmed vines over 40 years old, this incorporates all 13 of the appellation’s permitted varieties, and ages for a year in a mix of barriques and foudres. It feels elegant and structured, a wine to drink now or hold.

92 Points - Wine Spectator    Ripe and bright, with a mix of plum, raspberry and blueberry fruit flavors that are well-defined, picking up anise as well as singed sandalwood and juniper notes along the way. The fruit stays persistent through the finish, with a perfumed hint filling in. Best from 2020 through 2035.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    There's almost 20% new oak in this 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape, which gives it an overlay of exotic toasted coconut and vanilla aromas and flavors. Beyond that, there's ample weight, hints of cinnamon and clove and cherry fruit that lingers on the silky finish.
