2016 Château la Nerthe Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vin Rouge
Sexy raspberry and floral pastille aromas show good clarity and hints of peppery spices and wood smoke. Broad, supple and appealingly sweet, offering depth and intensity to the blue fruit and candied lavender flavours. Finishes long and impressively energetic, with smooth tannins. Drinking window: 2020-2026.
