Chateauneuf du Pape Chateau la Nerthe South Rhone 2000
Powerful dark fruits with a hint of coffee and chocolate. Packed with fruit and sweet, ripe and round on the palate, yet with a firm structure. An elegant wine with smooth tannins. Pairs particularly well with stewed lamb. A blend of typical Chateauneuf varieties, Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and Cinsault.
