Chateau La Nerthe Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2010


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

A wine with a beautiful dark color, with purple reflections. On the nose, we are seduced by the intensity and the purity of the fruit, by the discrete perception of the aromas coming from the ageing in barrels, by the touch of velvet that bring so much complexity. On the palate, the charm continue to operate. The wine is perfectly balanced, fleshy, round, structured, but still dominated by this finesse and precision that makes it accessible. The finish is long with hints of sweetness, fruit paste, and sweet spices.

Wine SpectatorA blast of toasted spice leads the way for a core of linzer torte, plum sauce and dark cherry preserves. The solid, juicy finish lets a red licorice note extend through it, with nice underlying grip. Drink now through 2021. 2,350 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastThe 2010 La Nerthe is a top vintage of this wine, which typically includes a decent proportion of Mourvèdre. It's spicy and plummy in style, with notes of cinnamon and clove that add welcome complexity to the dark fruit. Drink it over the next 10 or more years.
