Winemaker's Notes:

The 1998 vintage of this wine was ranked #7 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2000

A deep red with profond purple hints. Intense aromas with rich ripe fruits undertones, spices and various black colored berries soaked in alcohol. Well balanced on the palate with expressive hints of fig, cocoa and leather. The finish is long, complex and we note a great finesse of tanins.

Grenache 43 %, Syrah 36 %, Mourvèdre 21%.

About Chateau La Nerthe:

Chateau La Nerthe was born in the 12th century around the time vines were first planted in the stone-strewn soil of Chateauneuf-du-Pape ("the Pope's new castle"), the place the pontiffs chose for their summer residence when the papal court relocated to Avignon. Chateau La Nerthe has always been graced by the attentive care of its successive owners, and they have all contributed to the reputation for excellence that La Nerthe has acquired and maintained.
