    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

    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.

    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.
