Château la Nerthe Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Most Exciting Wine of The<br/>Vintage <br/>Warm, ripe, sweet red and black fruit with sun dried herbs on the<br/>nose... intoxicating and hedonistic on the palate... this really is<br/>very close to the mighty 2007 but in some ways it is more yielding, and will be<br/>ready to be quaff as the 2007 lies dormant. It's like a Provençale<br/>perfume: a beguiling essence of where it was grown. This is an estate on the<br/>up. <br/>(Simon Staples, Fine Wine Director) <br/> <br/>The 2008 is made up of 46% Grenache, 34% Syrah, 14% Mourvèdre, 5%<br/>Cinsualt and 1% intriguingly described as 'divers'. The wine has a<br/>floral perfume and an elegant and beautifully balanced palate, with notes of<br/>hedgerow and gentle spice to the fore and attractive velvety tannins providing<br/>eloquent support. <br/>(Simon Field MW, Rhône Buyer)

Château La Nerthe:
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.
