Château la Nerthe Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2007
This wine is a show stopper! Bang for bucks, it's also my Bargain of the<br/>Vintage (18.5/20) as well as Most Exciting Wine. With fabulously ripe and<br/>creamy framboise notes on the nose, a coating of gorgeous silky tannins and a<br/>really generous core of ripe plump red fruits, this is scrumptious!!! <br/>(Simon Staples, BBR Fine Wine Sales Director) <br/> <br/>Ch. la Nerthe really grabbed me for its firm, polished style which will<br/>make excellent drinking from soon after shipment to 2020 . A triumph. <br/>(Tom Cave, BBR Cellar Plan Manager)
Château La Nerthe is the oldest producer in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, producing wine since 1560. The winery has been certified organic since 1998, and is among the region’s top five wineries. La Nerthe is a leader in the art of blending, combining up to 13 varieties - so that no one dominates.
Rewarding complexity and drinkability for a price that isn't too high for Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Well balanced fruit and tannin, this wine will benefit from keeping a little longer or, at the very least, giving some time to breathe.
