About this Item

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 2007
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
Château La Nerthe, located in the heart of the Provence region, 80km north of Marseille, is a magnificent, 500-year-old property that has become one to watch over the past two decades. The vines are spread over 92 hectares of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation, made up of more than 57 parcels that represent all the different terroirs of the appellation. Over the many generations, the estate has received the most conscientious care from its successive owners, including aristocrats, agronomists and more. Since 1998, the estate has been working organically and the attention in both the vineyards and cellar hassled to some very notable wines.

Critics Ratings

‘Still youthful and not yet fully mature, the 2007 Châteauneuf du Pape is full-bodied and impeccably balanced, with a fresh, focused bouquet of cassis, licorice and charred meats. This cuvee always ages beautifully, and this is one of the more fresh, lively and focused 2007s out there--and it still has present tannin. It’s certainly enjoyable today but should be even better with a year or two of additional cellaring. Drink 2015-2032.’ - Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate, 94/100 (Feb 2017)

‘Surprisingly floral nose with a touch of coffee and spice. Fresh and silky. Fine tannins, long and rounded. 48% Grenache, 29% Syrah, 22% Mourvèdre, and others.’- Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20 (Jun 2010)
