Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2000 vintage of this wine was ranked #9 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2002

This wine avails of a red rubis dress with raspberry tints. The smell is fresh and fruity. We can find littles red fruits or black fruits touchs and also black pepper touchs. The palate is frank and elegant. This wine is complex with touchs of cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant and spice. Tannins are elegants.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape unquestionably benefitted from the declassified Cuvee des Cadettes being included in the blend. Composed of 48% Grenache, 28% Syrah, and 14% Mourvedre, 62% was barrel-aged and the rest spent time in large wood foudres before blending. Excellent aromatics of lavender, licorice, blueberry, black raspberry, and new saddle leather are followed by a ripe, full-bodied, elegant, accessible wine offering an admirable concoction of rich fruit, a substantial, full-bodied mouthfeel, and silky tannins. It should drink nicely for 12-15 years"
93 Points

"Ruby-red. Highly aromatic nose of dark berries, cherry-cola, smoky herbs and dried flowers. Deep in dark fruit flavor but lively and precise, with slow-building sweetness and a velvety texture. I like this wine's blend of richness and energy. The finish is sweet, focused and impressively incisive."
92 Points

"La Nerthe is usually quite structured, so while the 2007 is riper and creamier than most vintages, it still retains decent acidity to balance things out. Leather, spice and cherry flavors pick up hints of coffee and chocolate on the finish. Drink it over the next 10-12 years."

Learn 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.

(shah-too-NUHF due Pahp) Southern Rhone's landmark region, Chateauneuf du Pape, was the first region to gain AC status in France. That was the 1920s - it's history goes much further back than that. As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the new papal home, referring to the period of time in the 1300's when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome. Notable Facts...
