Château La Nerthe 2019
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.
Attractive dark garnet color with purple hints. A rich and complex nose on black fruits (blackcurrant, cherries and olives) with spicy and floral touches thanks to a large proportion of Syrah. The palate is savory on laurel, licorice with ripe tannins, density on the mid-palate, deep and length on the finish. A splendid wine capable to age for two decades or more !
