Château La Nerthe 2017
Château La Nerthe, Châteauneuf-du-Pape red, is the soul of the estate’s wines. It has been exported across the globe since the eighteenth century. All the plots of grenache noir, syrah, mourvèdre, and cinsault grapes are planted across the different soil types within the wine appellation, making the style of this wine the full expression of the complexity of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It pairs wonderfully with rare meat, Provencal classics, or other elaborate dishes made with sauce.
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 pourri). 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.
