Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CHÂTEAU LA NERTHE
This spicy blend of 40% Grenache Blanc, 30% Viognier, 22% Roussanne and 8% Marsanne comes from a rather hot vintage. It has a medium straw colour and an individualistic, spicy, gently floral nose with some gently complex, rather leesy, intense, melon-tinged, baked-apple fruit. Dry, medium-full bodied, quite rich, bright, spicy, intense, very ripe muddled fruit - lemon-melon-apple-apricot flavours with a lingering, mouthfilling, somewhat minerally finish. Aged in tanks with 6 months on fine lees, the flavours appear to be somewhat disjointed at moment. Perhaps too flavorful for seafood, poultry should work best. It has 14% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. NEW in Vintages.
