Wine Advocate ReviewLa Nerthes 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape blanc is a blend of 40% white Grenache, 8% Bourboulenc, 40% Roussanne, 12% Clairette with the Roussanne barrel-fermented and aged in wood, and the balance of the cuvee tank-fermented as well as aged. This wine reveals classic floral rose petal notes intermixed with some tangerine and lemon zest. Honeysuckle, crisp acidity, and lemon oil are all noticeable in this full-bodied, rich, but delicate and concentrated wine that should drink nicely for 4-5 years. Drink 2007 - 2012.
