AOP Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Château La Nerthe 2015

€960 Flacon de 10cl

Made organically since 1998, this Châteauneuf-du-Pape displays a powerful nose showing notes of toast, roast coffee bean and kirsch, followed by licorice and leather aromas. In terms of palate, this is a rich and fruity full-bodied red. A smooth texture awaits you with spiced notes that appear on the finish. The structure and body of this wine make it an excellent pairing for spiced fillet of duck or even a shoulder of lamb in thyme sauce.
