La Nerthe Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee des Cadettes 2009
"...37% Syrah, 32% Grenache and 31% Mourvedre cropped at 22 hectoliters per hectare. One of the vintage’s finest Chateauneufs, it boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with a sweet bouquet of black and blue fruits, acacia flowers, licorice, truffles and lavender. This full-bodied wine effortlessly conceals its oak aging as well as high levels of tannins. Showy at present, it will undoubtedly shut down once it is bottled, and keep for 25+ years...93-95+" WA 10/10

Editorial Reviews for La Nerthe Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee des Cadettes
Dense on the nose with notes of lemon custard and lightly roasted orchard fruits enlivened by a grassy edge, some subtle hints of spice and a touch of gravel. Almost sweet on entry, this is fairly full bodied and very broad in the mouth. It’s a soft, slightly languid style of wine, but well done in its style. Lots of flavor here: apples, citrus pith, some sweet apricot glaze, patisserie tones and a little butteriness on the back end. The finish is a touch lean, of decent length and offering a clean, zesty compliment to the fruit of the palate. Not my style but very well done. 90pts
Bright, tart flavors on the nose (green apple, lemon), getting warmer and riper on the palate into peach, very zingy finish!
Elegant and pleasant nose and palate, super soft fruit notes, light yet buttery body, with light tannins and mild acidity. Delicious to drink alone but complimented perfectly a grilled Branzino with Pico de Gallo and Avocado salad.
Apple, buttery upfront with slight acid on the finish - really enjoyed this one!
