Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CHÂTEAU LA NERTHE
Ambering deep intense brick red colour. Intense, very complex, slightly spicy, still quite lively, maturing, baked ripe plum-cherry nose with some cedary-sandalwood, forest floor notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, well structured, intense, slightly spicy, maturing, fairly rich, complex, earth-tinged, ripe plum flavours with a lingering, cedary, still fairly high-acid, sandalwood finish. This blend of 56% Grenache, 24% Syrah, 12% Mourvedre and 8% Cinsault has 14% alcohol and 3 g/L residual sugar. There was some bottle variation, as is to be expected. As there are only 24 cases of this Flagship Store Exclusive you should move quickly. TONY ASPLER / 91-points / BEST BUY - Cedary, dried rose petal, plum and dried herbs on the nose with notes of oak; full-bodied, rich and full on the palate. At its peak, savoury black fruit flavour with ripe tannins. Beginning to dry out. Drink soon. CSPC 735407

A Best Buy
Jeb Dunnuck called this wine a \"... classically styled effort that exhibits plenty of spice-box, cedar, kirsch and forest floor qualities on both the nose and palate ... nothing but textbook Chateauneuf flair and should continue to drink nicely for a number of years.\" (robertparker.com, Feb. 26, 2014). TASTING NOTE: Ripe, showing lots of raspberry, blackberry and licorice flavors, with solid minerality and notes of tobacco and roasted herb. The long, fleshy, smoky finish shows fine acidity. Drink now through 2015. Score - 91 (James Molesworth, winespectator.com, May 15, 2007) Price $ 62.95
