I bought a bunch and tried these over several years. Pale lemon with aromas of stone and green fruits with a citrus notes. On the palate flavors of apple, peach and pear, crisp with good balance, fresh with lively acidity. Long finish, ending with nutty earthy tones. Distributor I met indicated wine can be put down for a few years, he was correct, outstanding wine, still tasting great.

Château La Nerthe dates back to 1560, records suggest it might even go back to the 12th century making it one of Châteauneuf’s oldest estates, located in the heart of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC region of France near Avignon. Ruby with aromas of red fruit. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault. The palate shows raspberries, plums, cherries and blackberries and hints of leather, spice and black pepper. Aged in oak, the wine was complex and elegant with smooth tannins, long finish. Nice!

Stewed fruit, tobacco, raspberry, dried herbs, menthol, cured meats, riverbed rocks and complimenting acid. May have lost a bit more fruit than it should have by now, but storage may have been an issue. Still amazing.

Crushed rocks, Macerated cherries, incense, strawberry, wild herbs, sweet licorice, slight cured meats and acid still kicking. Really pretty.

OoLaLa got a taste of this beauty. Blend of 39% Syrah, 37% Grenache & 22% Mourvèdre, aged in new French oak. Deep Ruby with aromas of red fruits, floral and spice. On the palate strawberry, plum and black cherry flavors with sweet herbs and exotic rustic spices, well balanced. Long finish with complex fruit, sweet vanilla cedar and mineral ending. Tasting Sample!

Medium Garnet in color. Just amazing nose. Perfumed spice. Nutmeg. The varietal nuance sang through with prune, figs, cedar box and cherry. Aged to a very nice finish.

Delicate and delicious. Wonderfully feminine for CDP, but it totally works. Drinking well now.

Elegant and lithe for CdP. No excesses here. Just purity of fruit and smooth tannin structure that lifts the fruit. Red fruit spectrum and herb. One better CDP's I've had recently.
