Tasting Notes

Dark red with a purple border. On the nose, rich tones of spices, black berries, candied orange with a hint of black pepper. The palate is fresh, with a lovely tannic structure on fine tannins. The finish is long, with a touch of black cherry, roasted characters, and candied fruits.

Ratings

Wine & Spirits 93 pts - This 2004 hails from a vintage remembered for its drought-like conditions up until August; it's slow to emerge from the soft, caramel notes of age, but rewards patience as it takes on a kaleidoscope array of flavors. The fruit comes up, gauzy but present, a delicate background for a hunger-inducing array of spices, herbs and umami flavors. It feels wonderfully organic, like forest floor and dried grasses, mushrooms and black cherries, ready now but also in no danger of fading over the next several years.

About the Winery

Here is one of the 3 largest properties of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation with its 92 hectares of vines. Very old vineyard, the first archives of Château la Nerthe date back to the 16th century when the estate was named the Ferme du Beauvenir. His name today echoes one of the members of the family who bought it in the 16th century and who was none other than a prior living on the Nerthe Massif.
