Chateau La Nerthe Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2013
|Brand||Chateau La Nerthe|
Wine SpectatorA beam of raspberry pâte de fruit and warm plum confiture stretches from start to finish, with light licorice, warm fruitcake and gently singed apple wood notes filling in along the way. A bit forward in style, but will certainly win fans for the alluring fruit and spice. Drink now through 2023. 12,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateI think a small step back from the 2014, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape is still a rock solid effort in this difficult vintage. Offering up plenty of sweet black cherry and raspberry-styled fruits, spice, leather and peppery Provençal herbs, it's medium-bodied on the palate and has a firm underlying core of tannin that will need a year or two in the cellar to integrate. It will be one of the longer-lived wines in the vintage.
Wine EnthusiastThis is not nearly as rich and plush as La Nerthe's luxury-level Cuvée des Cadettes, but remains a very good wine. Red plum and red currant fruit is medium-bodied, supported by bright acids, while some slightly ashy notes and a hint of cocoa emerge on the crisp finish.
