Rhone Red Blends from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhone, France

Winemaker Notes

This deep red Châteauneuf du Pape is very aromatic. At the very begining, the nose is very red fruit driven and then, after a couple of minutes, it becomes more spicy (sweet asian spices and pot ourri). The mouth is full of energy, very juicy. Lots of garrigue characters, herbal notes but still very fleshy. The palate is soft and dense bringing an intense sappy finish.

94 Points/Tasting Panel
Spanning 225 acres, Château La Nerthe’s vineyards occupy a single block that has been certified organic since 1998. Their sandy clay soils boast a surface layer of the famous large, round stones called galets. All 14 of the appellation’s permitted varieties are planted here, though 62% of the vines—which average over 40 years old—are Grenache. Offering focused aromas of rhubarb, orange peel, and iron, this spiced expression has abundant personality defined by cinnamon and cranberry: It’s juicy, fresh, and vibrant, with a chewy texture and an earthy nature.

93 Points/Wine Spectator
This pumps ripe raspberry, plum and blackberry pâte de fruit flavors through, with anise, fruitcake and Christmas pudding notes adding range and detail along the way. Flash of bay on the finish. A not-shy wine. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Best from 2022 through 2032.

93 Points/James Suckling
A very vibrant array of ripe raspberry, red-plum and berry-pastry aromas with mulberries, too. Very fresh. There’s a very rich and ripe, dark-fruit core here with a wealth of super plush and languid tannins that are dense yet soft. This is a hallmark of the vintage. A blend of 45% grenache, 30% syrah, 15% mourvedre and ten additional varieties. Drink over the next decade and more.
