Château la Nerthe White Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Clos de Beauvenir 2006
This luxury white cuvée, Clos de Beauvenir (60% Roussanne and 40 % Clairette) is named after the original name of the estate in the 16th Century. Selected from the finest parcels of old vines, this wine is truly an elixer in a class by itself. A gloriously perfumed, honeyed wine possessing full body, terrific acidity, tremendous delineation, and a layered texture.
