A white wine with a pretty pale color, and green highlights. The nose is intense on white peach and grapefruit aromas with a hint of cassis. A very nice acidity on the palate perfectly balanced by a lot of fat and smooth. A wine full of freshness, roundness and fruit, with a long finish on citrus and violet scents.
The 2010 La Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape blanc is sensational, one of the best regular cuvees of this white I have tasted, with hints of honey interwoven with orange marmalade, rose petals, lychee, sweet citrus and spice. Full-bodied, with good minerality, terrific acidity, and a penetrating, full-throttle mouthfeel, this is a big, luscious white to drink over the next 5-7 years.
Light gold. Fresh pear, pineapple and nectarine aromas are complicated by notes of honey and lemon zest. Spicy and precise on entry, then more plump in the middle, showing an array of orchard and pit fruit flavors. Fresh and tight on the spicy, lemony finish. I like this wine's blend of richness and vivacity.
