2009 Chateau la Nerthe - Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Granieres de la Nerthe

Close


Wines from the venerable Chateau La Nerthe have been used as calling cards for the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation for decades. From their top of the line Cuvee des Cadettes to this young-vines Les Granieres, the wines display the spice and richness one expects from the southern Rhone, with an elegance more closely akin to Burgundy. Crafted with a blend of organically farmed Grenache, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and Syrah, this Chateauneuf-du-Pape boasts textbook dried spice and dark fruit aromas and flavors that just don't quit. Medium to full bodied, this meaty red is best enjoyed with savory roasts like lamb shanks and turkey with all the trimmings. Be sure to open this at least five to 10 minutes before serving, decant if possible to enjoy its full array of aromas and flavors.
