Review: 2007 Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Certified organic in 1998, the 90 hectares of Chateau La Nerthe are part of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape region’s oldest estates. This 2007 vintage is composed of 48% Grenache, 29% Syrah, 22% Mourvedre, and 1% Cinsault.

Deep and rich currant aromas on the nose hint at a really big wine, but it’s surprisingly lively on the tongue, lighter than you’d think. Spices dominate the palate, typical for Rhone blends, underpinned by a modest earthy character. The moderate-bodied wine ends with a bit of pepper and leather, a touch drying but overall quite a pleasant experience.
