Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge 2016

Product description

Château La Nerthe is located in the heart of the Provence region in southeast France, about 80 km north of Marseille. It is a magical place thanks to its cellars dating back to the 16th century and belvedere viewpoint dominated by the 18th century chateau. Château La Nerthe produces eminent red and white wines from the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation. These wines reveal their determination to attain the highest quality as measured by their expression of elegance and finesse.

The complexity is achieved by the complementarity of the grape varieties and the excellence of the terroirs. Winemaking without artifice promotes length and finesse rather than power and concentration. Ageing in large casks, wooden vats and barrels confers a superb balance between freshness and mature tannins, resulting in wines with great ageing potential.

93 Points - Wine Spectator    Creamy textured plum and raspberry sauce notes glide through, flecked with black tea flavours and framed by a subtle apple wood hint. Flattering in feel, but shows latent cut and drive, so there's no rush. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Best from 2020 through 2034.
