Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape 2013 - 1.5 Litre

Product description

Dark red, with a purple border. The nose is rich, pure and complex, with black fruits and sweet spices. On the palate, lots of roundness, with nice refined tannins. Finish is very long, with notes of black cherry and black berry, with a silky touch on the tongue. A feeling of youth and freshness emerges. The aromas given by the ageing in oak are still visible, with hints of spices and roasting, but they will be soon integrated into the wine and will make it really complex. A wine with a great cellaring potential and with an impressing aromatic expression.

92 Points - Wine & Spirits    This is youthful and undeveloped, the focus on rich and toasty scents and broad, creamy texture. What make it compelling is the sleekness of its structure and the clarity of its white fruit flavors. It feels fresh and lively, already classy, poised to take on more detail with another five to ten years in the cellar.

91 Points - Wine Spectator    A beam of raspberry pâte de fruit and warm plum confiture stretches from start to finish, with light licorice, warm fruitcake and gently singed apple wood notes filling in along the way. A bit forward in style, but will certainly win fans for the alluring fruit and spice. Drink now through 2023. 12,000 cases made.
