We have added the following products to your shopping cart from a previous visit:
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
A wine with a beautiful dark color, with purple reflections. On the nose, we are seduced by the intensity and the purity of the fruit,
by the discrete perception of the aromas coming from the ageing in barrels, by the touch of velvet that bring so much complexity. On
the palate, the charm continue to operate. The wine is perfectly balanced, fleshy, round, structured, but still dominated by this finese
and precision that makes it accessible. The finish is long with hints of sweetness, fruit paste, and sweet spices.
Blend: 46% Grenache, 44% Roussanne, 9% Clairette, 1% Bourboulenc
"Bold spice and warm linzer torte aromas lead to a racy beam of cherry compote, plum sauce and raspberry coulis. The long, spice- and toast-filled finish is showy. Drink now through 2019."
"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better from bottle than it did last year. Composed of 47% Grenache, 38% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre, it is surprisingly soft and evolved for La Nerthe, but that actually gives the wine additional appeal. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by aromas of blue and black fruits, lavender, licorice, truffles and garrigue. Full-bodied, supple textured, fleshy and succulent..."
The Wine Advocate
"Vivid ruby. Ripe cherry and dark berry aromas, with exotic notes of pit fruits and vanilla gaining strength with air. Supple, sweet, palate-coating blackberry and cherry flavors become spicier with air. Shows very good energy on the finish, which is precise, sappy and very persistent."

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.
